What is climate change and how will it affect our city?
Help to future proof our planet through fun activities that investigate how we can respond to climate change.
Students will learn about the role of transport, energy, food, and clothing, and leave the programme feeling empowered to make a difference.
We are learning to:
Students will use oral, written, and visual texts to understand key terms.
Students will use creative, critical, and metacognitive processes to consider the consequence and real-life meanings of climate change.
Students will be encouraged to manage themselves both in groups and independently.
Students will problem-solve to come up with solutions to tasks.
Students will be expected to work together in different grouping arrangements and to maintain effective interactions with their peers in a range of contexts offered through a variety of activities.
