Educator Resources

Teaching & Learning About Biodiversity

At EarthEcho, our mission is to inspire young people worldwide to act now for a sustainable future.  Educators, parents, and community learning programs are all essential in this process- providing youth with the knowledge, tools, and opportunities to be catalysts for change.  To support our youth in looking at the world around them with a critical and innovative eye, we have provided standards-aligned educational resources to help support biodiversity education in both formal and informal learning environments as we set out to preserve, protect, and repair natural resources in our own backyards.

These resources have been developed by classroom teachers for flexible use across a variety of learning environments. Resources are designed to prepare students and their mentors to enter the OurEcho Challenge and may be used independently to learn more about biodiversity in everyday life.

Below you can find the 2020 OurEcho Challenge Checklist & Winning Tips, Scoring Rubric, Challenge Guide, Brainstorming Worksheet and all of the items you need to support team entry to the OurEcho Challenge. After reviewing the teaching and learning resources enter your students for the opportunity to put their solutions to action.

Stay tuned for next year's OurEcho Challenge!
