Environmental Racism Activities from Teaching Tolerance

April 9th, 2009 by Dave · No Comments

As Earth Day approaches, one topic that is often left out of the discussion is environmental racism. Teaching Tolerance has three lesson plans designed for different grade levels.

  • Fair is Fair (K-5) is a good introduction to the concept for children.
  • Progressive City Planners (6-8) puts students in the role of urban designers, and includes some great statistics and a video from CNN.
  • Reporting on Environmental Racism (9-12) has students acting as investigative journalists, and uses some interesting case studies.
  • The latter two activities would both work great with intermediate or advanced learners, and offer a chance to work on critical thinking in addition to language skills.
