2019 Kids Teaching Kids Week #KTKWeek2019
Kids Teaching Kids Week is a free, national, peer teaching program that uses the environment as a theme and focus for learning. Students of all ages find solutions to complex environmental problems such as climate change, water, waste, conservation, energy, drought, population and pollution. Students research an environmental topic of interest and then deliver their environmental messages to peers through songs, comedy, dance routines, poems, plays, games and experiments. For over 19 years Kids Teaching Kids has inspired more than 140,000 children across Australia to learn about, care for and respect their local environment.
Kids Teaching Kids helps build resilience in students through fostering high self-esteem and facilitating genuine community connections. Planning is well underway for Kids Teaching Kids Week 9th-13th September. During this week thousands of students across Australia will teach each other and their community about local environmental issues. The program is open to all Australian schools; government, Catholic and independent. Schools and organisations are encouraged to sign up to the program during Term 1 to allow adequate time plan and implement the program.
