For Schools

using chasing ice in the classroom

We made Chasing Ice to help people realize the impact climate change is having on the natural world and humanity We believe engaging next generation in discussion around solutions to the climate crisis is key, and those conversations can start in the classroom.

The Chasing Ice team was pleased to worked with Earth Day Network to create educational guides for multiple age groups to accompany the film. We hope these resources help to invigorate discussions around climate issues. We recommend sharing the film with your students to kick off the conversation.
