Children are urged variously to do such things as:
Help save them. Screw up your own life. Turn your back on generations of hard-won effort and industrial progress. Feel bad about just about everything, Just look at what's happening to the polar bears. Turn off lights. Hassle your parents. Be afraid of global warming. Blame humanity for it.
Example here: http://www.thedailybeast.com/newsweek/2007/04/15/will-polar-bears-be-ok.html
'Sean Hussey and his twin sister, Erin, are only 9 years old, but they already know all about global warming. And they're worried, very worried. Teachers at their Hillsborough, Calif., school have shown them pictures of melting glaciers. Sean fears that polar bears will be left homeless. "I like polar bears a lot," he explains. Erin is also concerned about what she calls "the animal side" of climate change. "There are lots of animals that shouldn't die," she says. "The humans are the ones who are causing it." '
Meanwhile, the polar bears are doing OK.
What does that tell you about the scamsters of climate, class? Pretty shoddy? Yup - that's about right.
For a sensible view, one based on reality and not the wishful fantasising of malevolent zealots, here are some observations by Matt Ridley. Extract:
His writing was inspired by a study made by a polar bear expert Susan Crockford. It is available for download here at the Global Warming Policy Foundation site.
Her study is entitled '10 Good Reasons Not To Worry About Polar Bears'
That would make a good title for a display on the classroom wall would it not? The children would be pleased. Why not help put their troubled minds at rest?

Note added later on 17 March: The Heartland Institute in the States has produced an advertising-hoarding that could provide ideas for a wall display although it is perhaps too political for the classroom itself::

Note added 26 Oct 2018. Yet more vindication:
From the inestimable Kenneth Richard:
'Ten years ago, polar bears were classified as an endangered species due to model-based assumptions that said the recession of Arctic sea ice would hamper the bears’ seal-hunting capabilities and ultimately lead to starvation and extinction...
'The paleoclimate evidence, which shows that sea ice was thinner and less extensive than today for most of the last 10,000 years, also contradicts the assumptions about modern polar bear endangerment due to thinning ice. One must ask: How did polar bears survive sea ice free summers in the ancient past if they existentially rely on thick sea ice to hunt prey today?
