Register for Earth Hour Schools Day

Schools around Australia have been passionate supporters of Earth Hour. Thousands of teachers have used our free, curriculum-aligned lesson plans to introduce their students to sustainability. These lesson plans, together with Earth Hour activities, are a great way to develop and foster science-based learning and caring for our environment. Through Earth Hour, many students, teachers and schools have become community leaders in renewable energy, environmental sustainability and conservation.

Many students have also benefited from our Earth Hour Solar Lights program where they assemble solar-powered lights that are sent to in-need communities around the world. Through this activity, they learn invaluable lessons about energy poverty and renewable energy.

Register your school’s participation for Earth Hour Schools Day, Friday 23 March 2018 and get in touch with us if you would like to participate in the Earth Hour Solar Lights program.

Earth Hour Curriculum Toolkit

Turn your Earth Hour actions into valuable classroom learning!
Earth Hour has partnered with Cool Australia (coolaustralia.org) to create a range of classroom-ready resources to enhance student learning and engagement. Teachers can access the lessons for FREE and download digital worksheets, Smartboard lessons and a host of other resources to teach lessons that will last a lifetime. These resources are aligned with the Australian Curriculum content descriptors, general capabilities and address the cross curricular priorities of ‘sustainability.

Teachers from all learning areas can use these lessons to help students to switch off to join a cleaner future. At the heart of these lessons is the idea that students can connect to the wider community and take action to make a difference.
