Healthy Earth, Sick Earth
This lesson uses the book Planet Earth Gets Well by Madeline Kaplan to introduce students to
concepts related to climate change and properly caring for the Earth. Students will learn what they
can do to help make the Earth “healthy” and what others are doing that is making the earth “sick.”
