Climate Change

Overview

Learners explore what climate change is and what is causing it.  They consider who is responsible for climate change:  individuals, politicians, businesses?  They are then challenged to think of a variety of ways they can tackle climate change both at home and at school.

The resource could be run as a single lesson but, where possible, we would recommend it forms part of a wider unit of work.  It has been split into four distinct parts.

    Part 1: What is climate change?
    Part 2: What are the causes of climate change?
    Part 3: What is the impact of climate change?
    Part 4: What can we do?
