Earth Hour is an annual event organised by the World Wide Fund for Nature and our monthly lesson plan for March looks at this event in more detail. Students watch a promotional video for Earth Hour, read a text about Earth Hour in the UK, and talk about issues related to the topic. Students listen to a song from the video as an extension activity.
