Our Climate Change lesson plan introduces students to climate change and its effect on the Earth and the atmosphere. Students are made aware of the debate and the lesson includes an opportunity for students to debate information related to climate change. During this lesson, students are asked to work collaboratively, with a group of other students, on an activity in which they discuss questions related to climate change, such as “I am only one person and what I do cannot make a big difference to the Earth,” in order to get them to think more deeply about climate change and connect it to the real world. Students are also asked to match terms to their definitions, demonstrating their understanding of the lesson vocabulary.

At the end of the lesson, students will be able to define climate change and identify the causes and effects of climate change.

    Climate Change

    My students found the book both a useful guide as well as interesting with engaging pictures graphs and materials they could both relate to and find able to read without struggling to grasp the concepts.

    Climate Change

    I really like many of Claredon's lessons but was disappointed in this. the reading definitely had a slant that there is a "debate" about climate change. For example saying many scientists instead of most scientist. Also, the solutions were not very uniwue or detailed. It would have been nice if they mentioned diet choices and legislation.
