Jane Goodall to Interact With K-6 Students for Earth Week Webinar

TIME for Kids is hosting a free webinar on Monday, April 20 from 1:00 to 2:00 p.m. EST to kick off this year’s Earth Week celebration. The webinar will be driven by the famous primatologist and humanitarian Dr. Jane Goodall. 

Students and teachers can interact with Dr. Goodall during the live webinar, boasted a recent press release, which is due to focus on conservation and environmentalism in addition to the long career of the primatologist. Hundreds of K-6 classrooms have already registered globally. Dr. Goodall will not only answer questions from students about her career and environmental protection live, but teachers can also submit questions from their classes during the registration process. 

“As education technology becomes more widely accessible in classrooms, it’s never been easier and more fun to connect students with the world they live in,” said managing editor of TIME for Kids Nellie Gonzalez Cutler in the release. “These once-in-a-lifetime learning opportunities allow children to engage with experts and their peers from around the world, fostering global knowledge and connectivity, while encouraging the next generation to help make the planet a better place for its inhabitants.”

Supplemental materials, from printable worksheets to graphic organizers, are also being provided for continued learning after the webinar is over. Some resources, such as “Around the World: Tanzania”, are available for free before the webinar. Teachers should review some of Dr. Goodall’s work, including her lifelong mission and deep research, with their classes before attending if they haven’t already.
