At Cool the Earth, our K-8 program is fighting climate change one child at a time.

The Program

Kids, Climate and Schools: A Local Solution

Our K-8 enrichment program teaches students about climate change solutions and is ready to run at schools and organizations that work with kids. We provide all necessary materials and support to each school that runs the program.

Cool the Earth assembly

We provide a script, costumes and materials. Then, volunteers at each school stage their own 25 minute climate change assembly.

Learn about the assembly

After the assembly, each kid brings home a coupon book featuring a variety of actions families can take to help stop climate change.

Cool the earth actions

Completed coupons are collected at school and tallied by a volunteer. As the tally builds, kids see the change they make by working together.

Koda Quest

Koda Quest is a free mobile app that is fun for every child, and encourages them to save energy and water. Kids love to play with Koda the polar bear on their smart phone, and for kids who have already experienced the Cool the Earth program at school, it will be exciting to connect with Koda in a whole new way.
