Overview

Our Climate Challenge resources for 7–11 year olds focus on the human impact of climate change: how communities around the world are being affected by climate change and how people are responding and adapting to these challenges.

The activities link to a number of curricular areas including science, English and geography. Explore and develop existing ideas about climate change:

  • Carry out a science investigation to develop understanding of the greenhouse effect.
  • Identify human causes of climate change.
  • Compare carbon footprints.
  • Use a consequence web, case studies and role play to develop awareness of the impacts of climate change.
  • Play a climate change vulnerability game.
  • Investigate how communities are adapting to the effects of climate change.
  • Work with others to take action against climate change.

Also available for 11–14 years old.
