To culminate a unit of study on the topic, eighth grade Earth Science students at Westhampton Beach Middle School created public service announcements to educate community members about the effects of climate change.
“Climate change is a significant topic within the Earth Science curriculum, though we extend it past the standards,” said teacher Greg Izzo.
Izzo, along with fellow teacher Laurie Ardito, embedded the climate change PSA project within the coursework to show students that they have the power and the voice to effect positive change.
After conducting significant research, the students created PSA videos that they virtually shared with fellow students as part of a peer review process. Projects examined rising sea levels, wildfires, air pollution, wind energy, deforestation and solar energy, among other topics.
