Film Fostering Inquiry and Reflection About Earth

In 1968 three astronauts embarked on the Apollo 8 mission and witnessed Earth as it had never been seen before. The first color photograph taken beyond Earth’s orbit was later titled Earthrise. An award-winning film from Global Oneness Project documents the story of this photograph. How does the Earthrise photograph provide a context for what it means to be a global citizen? This is the driving question of the Earthrise curriculum/discussion guide, which compels students to reflect on Earth as a shared home and challenges them to consider how they might build on the legacy of the Earthrise photograph. The guide, intended for grades 5–16, includes four themes (power of perspective, bearing witness, exploration, and reverence for the environment). It provides historical, cultural, and environmental connections; image-analysis activities; discussion and writing prompts; conversation cards; student media projects; student and teacher worksheets; as well as connections to national standards and the sustained development goals.
