AEM United Nations SDG's Resource Roundup

Welcome back!  We hope everyone had a chance to get some much needed R&R as well as to enjoy time with loved ones in-person or virtually.  Authentic Exploration Matters is continuing to work on some new, one day educator experiences that we hope to offer in the spring.  As details are finalized, we will announce them to you.  So, keep watching your Resource Roundups and we hope to begin making those announcements in January.  We always enjoy highlighting what the amazing and dedicated educator community is doing.  So, if you know a teacher, school, or club that is incorporating some unique ideas, please let me know!  We would love to highlight them in an upcoming Resource Roundup in 2024!  You can also keep up with AEM by following us on social media where we can be found @authentic_exploration_matters or on our website at .  You are always welcome to contact me, Kirstin Cowan, if you could use assistance in locating various resources as well.  We are here to help you!

This week we will be focusing on ways you can engage your students and school wide community with the United Nations Sustainability Development Goals, or SDG’s.  The UN developed the SDG’s as a blueprint to help achieve a better and more sustainable future for all.  There are 17 goals that are all interconnected.  The SDG’s can be used as a type of framework and as a tool to help students develop research, critical thinking, problem solving, teamwork and communication skills.  All of these skills will ultimately help them prepare for the future and real-world issues they will likely encounter.  Teaching your students about the SDG’s can also help nurture empathy and compassion.  As you explore this weeks Resource Roundup, find ways to include some new experiential teaching ideas.  You will find activities such as the “Go Goals” board game, lessons plans, interactive options, a video game based on the SDG’s, created by EPIC games using their Fortnite Creative platform, and more ways to help your students become agents for change.
