Global Goals Project Starter Kit
Choose a level that works for you & get started. #TeachSDGs
What are the Global Goals?
Why should you and your students learn and support the Global Goals?
How can you and your students get involved in the Global Goals Initiative?
Level 1: Build an Awareness to the Global Goals
- Sign the pledge to teach the Global Goals:
- Introduce the Global Goals using the video below:
- Share the goals with students
- Discuss the importance of the goals
- Select a goal as a class, in groups, or as individuals to brainstorm solutions
Job well done, you are now aware of the Global Goals…you could stop here or continue to level up the learning and make a bigger impact in Level 2.
Level 2: Design a Solution or Awareness Campaign to the Global Goals
- Get students excited about helping out by viewing the "Call to Action" video below.
- Develop a project, based on your students' strengths, connect it to your curriculum standards, and towards finding a solution to the Global Goal selected.
- Explore Global Goal Project Ideas
- It can be as simple as a poster (example posters) or digital story to build awareness, a campain to get others involved, or as complex as a protype of an invention. The tools you use are completely your choice.
- Curriculum Standards Connection Hint- Look for topics and terms at your grade level like: goods/services, compare/contrast, design, human needs, changes in Earth, relationship between humans and physical environment, Earth Day, and others in science and social studies.
Yay, your students are taking part in the solution...stop here or level up by making them true global collaborators in Level 3.
Level 3: Connect with other Classrooms through the Global Goals Skype Collaboration
Option 1: Working independently, in groups, or as a whole class, students will then share their work from Level 2 with a class of children somewhere else in the world. The other class will do the same.
Option 2: You will connect with another teacher somewhere in the world and will work collaboratively to develop a project that works for both of your classes. An example might be solar lamps which fits into SDG 12: Responsible Consumption and Production and SDG 13: Climate Action. You may have several Skype sessions for brainstorming, project development, and sharing. This is a choice to be made by you and your partner teacher.
Connect with educators via Skype. The Microsoft Educator Community has a variety of Global Goals collaborations like the ones below:
Global Goals Skype Collaboration (great for any grade level)
Kids Avengers Global Goals Collaboration (great for elementary)
