Netflix has released a 1 hour 17 minute (without credits) documentary which focuses on how Sir David Attenborough has witness the planet changing over his life time - some important links are made to key concepts within Ecology unit of the AQA GCSE Biology course. Attached is a worksheet with questions on for pupils to answer throughout the documentary and a task to summarise their feelings at the end. In addition, I have added the PowerPoint i’ll be using during this double lesson and a follow up task on how pupils can reduce their carbon footprint.
