Explorer Classroom is an interactive session that connects learners with National Geographic Explorers for short lessons and Q&A. After the featured Explorer’s lesson, your students will have a chance to have their questions answered in real time! This event is recommended for students ages 13-18 and will take place on April 12th @ 2pm ET; register for the time that works best for your class.  A recording of the event will be available to watch on-demand on our YouTube channel if your students cannot attend live.

This school year, each month will be organized around a specific theme to help students build an #ExplorerMindset. April’s theme is Wildlife! We’ll focus on building the attitudes of curiosity and empathy, and the skills of applying geographic perspectives, acquiring geographic knowledge, and taking informed action. Explorers will demonstrate the 21st Century Skills of critical thinking and problem solving. The related standards are Earth and Human Activity, Ecosystems, and Geography. Teachers, we’ve also created a new interactive guide, Explorer Mindset in Action! Share this with your students to take them on a learning journey with each of our Explorers that sparks curiosity, builds empathy, and empowers ALL learners to take action.
