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?
