Classroom Practices to Promote a Green Future

Hello, green future-minded friends!

It’s nearly the Christmas holidays. We know that in a few short weeks you will be trying your best to put school and your classroom to the back of your minds.

If you’re anything like me when I was teaching, you’ll use the first couple of weeks of holiday recuperating and enjoying some well-deserved me-time!

End-of-year holidays provide a wonderful time to reflect on the year that was. They are also a great occasion to formulate new ideas and plan for the year ahead.

While we don’t want you to rush into the planning and prepping stage, we thought we’d give you some classroom ideas to mull over during the Christmas break. In between all the eggnog and rum balls of course!

Promoting a Green Future with Teach Starter

Here in the Teach Starter office, we are incredibly passionate about the environment. In all things we do, we strive to use our business practices as a force for good.

This means ensuring that we do our best to minimise our impact on the environment and encourage our members to do so too.

You may have read our blog post 45 Sustainable Practices for the Environmentally Friendly Classroom. We love to show our members how easy it is to employ environmentally friendly practices in your day-to-day class activities!

Classroom Practices to Promote a Green Future

We’ve taken things one step further and produced an amazing resource – an e-booklet on Classroom Practices to Promote a Green Future with Teach Starter.

Green Future

When you’re planning your lessons for the next term, download or print this e-booklet and keep it close. Consider it a teacher’s go-to-guide on how to drive a sustainably friendly classroom!

So, What’s in the booklet?

Classroom Practices to Promote A Green Future

Striving for a sustainable classroom can seem overwhelming if you’re not sure where to start. If you’re not sure about how to implement environmentally friendly practices in the classroom, the booklet contains facts and information on how going green can benefit your students and your school.

You’ll find tips and tricks for using our products digitally, as well as some quick and easy ways you can promote sustainability in your lessons.

There’s plenty of advice to make sure you are sustainably managing areas such as:

  • energy
  • waste
  • paper
  • food
  • water.

Each of these areas also links to a number of teaching resources to help you embed these ideas in your lessons.

We are confident that we can help each and every classroom in Australia help the environment.
