How to TalkTo Your Kids about Climate Change
Wondering how to explain to your children what climate change is and why it's so important? We discovered two websites that give tips on how to speak to your children based on their ages and comprehension; help them grasp what's happening and what we all can do; and so without the dire predictions that can cause them to worry.

Share Your Earth Day 2022 activities right here on Jackson's website!
Jackson started his website to help raise awareness about climate change with other students. Send an email with a description of what you did (or a photo) with the first names and ages of the kids who participated. We are setting up a special page for Earth Day 2022 activities to encourage even more kids and adults to learn about climate change and what they can do to help fight the problems it poses.
Share what your children/family did on Earth Day 2022 by sending first names and ages with one or two sentences about your activity to firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll add them to our website AND send by email a FREE Earth Day Hero Certificate to download and print for each participant. (NOTE: Send either the child's first name with ini or first and last name for us to prepare a personalized certificate. The certificate is useful for homeschool documentation purposes. It's also a fun reminder of what children have done for Earth Day 2022!)
