Celebrating Earth Day
Faculty from the School of Nursing's Center for Climate Change, Climate Justice, and Health led an Earth-Day-themed workshop for fifth graders from the Harvard-Kent Elementary School on April 12.
Students watched a short video on climate change and took part in a group discussion afterward. They then completed a climate-change-focused coloring activity, and heard from several IHP faculty on why climate change is such a crucial topic for their age group to learn and care about.
MGH Institute of Health Professions and Harvard-Kent Elementary School in Charlestown have created a formal partnership intended to improve pupils’ literacy skills and health while increasing opportunities for MGH Institute graduate students to learn about the needs of elementary school children.
