Browse the ClimateCorps Education Outside Asynchronous Video Library
We currently work with Climate Corps at some of our OUSD schools. You can access and browse their video library by filling out the brief request in the link below. I'd love to hear if you decide to use them!
"Climate Corps Education Outside is a program of SEI that is planting the seeds of science and ecoliteracy to grow environmental leaders. We do this by engaging K-5 public school students in gardens and outdoor classrooms on their campuses. During school closures we've been reaching students with asynchronous videos paired with synchronous instruction to deliver our services. If you'd like access to our K-5 video bank please fill out the form on this page to get the free library of resources."
