Kids Teaching Kids is a free, national, peer teaching program that uses the environment as a theme and focus for learning. Students of all ages find solutions to complex problems such as climate change, water, waste, conservation and energy. This is done through researching an environmental or social topic of interest, taking action within their communities and then delivering their messages to peers through songs, dance, poems, plays, games and experiments.
How does Kids Teaching Kids fit with Eco-Schools?
Once you have carried out your environmental review you’ll know the most pressing environmental issue for your school and what you want to improve. It’s time to research your topic and find solutions to include in your Action Plan. KTK is a great way to inform and involve your community and share the Eco-Committee’s findings with the whole school.
With only a few weeks to go till the 2017 KTK Week, make sure you check out all the fun on social media with #KTKWeek2017 or on Facebook.
The Kids Teaching Kids Team would love to answer any questions schools have and discuss how we can tailor the program to suit their individual needs. You can also register your interest to learn more about how to take part in the 2018 KTK Week on their website or find out more via email!
