Taking Root

This website includes background to two films on Wangari Maathai and links to purchase and view them. One film is a full length movie and the other is a seven-minute short film that the site recommends to accompany classroom tree planting. Teachers can also get access to multilanguage copies of the films by contacting the producers to become designated as International Action Partners.

The accompanying activity guide provides a wealth of resources for teachers like minigrant information, ideas for community partners, and guidance for engaging students. It also includes activities to facilitate for students including a Google Maps exploration, a tree journal, a collaborative tree map, and more.
