We are really excited to launch our new suite of lesson plans on climate change, for use by KS2 and KS3. The suite includes a set of lessons and presentations covering the following topics:
- What is climate change?
- What impacts is climate change having around the world?
- How are humans causing climate change?
- What can we all do to stop climate change?
As well as extensive notes and suggestions for classroom activities, this lesson plan suite also includes detailed instructions for a simple, but highly effective and engaging experiment that can be carried out using simple equipment in the classroom to show how increasing levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere are contributing to rising global temperatures. . Also included is a spreadsheet that students can populate with their own data from the experiment and visualise on a graph. The experiment was devised for YPTE this summer by Renee Tonkin, a PhD student at Imperial College, London.
