Parents and Educators: find resources for at-home and distance learning

This Just In: News Report

Allocate 45-60 minutes for this activity

Using statistics from the Biodiversity Educator’s Resource Guide, students will deliver a mock newscast, informing audiences of the current state of our planet and the urgent need for individual as well as collective action. Students will conduct research on the decline of biodiversity, and on how attention-getting communication techniques can help shape their delivery of the information. Like any good news report, the presentation should reflect on why this news is important and how the viewers can get involved. Students will become advocates for restoring nature and biodiversity by using effective communication skills to spread a message among their peers.
