Social Justice in Science Education

I just finished reading this article (https://www.nsta.org/science-teacher/science-teacher-novemberdecember-2022/teaching-environmental-social-justice) and found it full of such useful information. I am currently a fourth-year elementary education student at Wartburg college and I am also an activist. I am always trying to thinking of ways to incorporate social justice education into my future classroom, but struggle to connect real social justice to curriculum. This research study did a fantastic job at engaging students in a new form of HOTS, but I wonder if the information from it could be used in lower grade levels. I plan to teach middle school science and would love to begin teaching students to analyze science and their communities to look for inequity. Has anyone seen any useful materials or resources for incorporating social justice into their science classroom?
