SEL Corner: Bringing Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) into the Classroom on Earth Day
Earth Day brings a variety of exciting opportunities to the classroom. It can be a time to focus on sustainability and recycling through science education, or a chance to move class outside and do some hands-on learning activities. All of these traditional conversations are excellent experiences for students, and should continue in every classroom. We’d like to also propose a new approach to Earth Day, in addition to the science focus, especially for younger children: kindness. With the emerging and strengthening emphasis on social and emotional learning, Earth Day can be a unique way to help early learners forge key understandings about kindness, empathy, and thinking outside of themselves. It could also provide teaching opportunities to talk about care, respect, and responsibility.
