The primary resources available to download here have been supplied by WWF UK to help with teaching and learning about Earth Hour on 24 March 2018.

Pupils will be challenged to follow instructions to make recycled polar bear lanterns or recycled elephant lanterns in this Earth Hour primary resource sheet.

WWF is calling for everyone across the UK to sign up and take part in Earth Hour — the world’s biggest show of support for our brilliant planet and the need to protect it.

It’s an annual global demonstration where millions around the world switch off their lights for one hour to show they care about the future of our planet and to call for action on climate change.

The support has grown each year with around 9 million people taking part in the UK alone last year. 2018’s Earth Hour is set to be the biggest yet!

Sign up now at earthhour.wwf.org.uk

The teaching resource can be used as a printed handout for instruction in class time, or for display on the interactive whiteboard.

Activity: Ask children to complete the tasks on the page or adapt them for their own individual designs, colours and patterns.
