A short animated video from Concern Worldwide exploring the links between climate change, food waste and how our actions are contributing to global hunger.
Perfect for getting young people involved in taking action on global issues at a local level.
Students will learn about the causes and consequences of climate change, and through case studies, explore the ways in which climate change can impact plants and animals.
They will also consider what actions can be taken to reduce the impacts of climate change.
Resources that can contribute to the understanding of the causes and effects of climate change.
There are opportunities to analyse the long and short term changes in climate and the effect of rising sea levels on Wales.
Different views and attitudes about the causes of climate change are presented and a view on how governments intend to tackle the problem in regards of transport and agriculture are considered.
Leandro and the mysterious case of the disappearing and reappearing river is a learning activity for learners aged 12+ in Geography, with links to other subject areas.
It explores where our tea comes from, and builds learners’ understanding of hydrology, climate change, and of how human and physical processes interact to influence environments and the climate. Through a focus on sustainable food production, they’ll also be able to reflect on how all of us rely on effective functioning of natural systems for our food and livelihoods.
The activity focuses on learning through developmental group work, a constructivist approach to learning that is directed by learners themselves.

Class presentation which provides a concise introduction to Climate Change and Global Warming. Pupils should be able to understand the processes which contribute to Climate Change and discuss the possible impact of Climate Change on the survival of living things.
This is the first lesson in a series of three teaching pupils about
1. Climate change/global warming
2. human activities relating to this
3.renewable energy sources carbon footprints and offsetting.
As a new resource we would really appreciate as much feedback on the lessons as possible in order for us to then refine them and to ensure they are fully relevant and effective.

The SGM issues topical briefing papers which provide need-to-know information on various subjects such as hospital-acquired infections, climate change and pandemic influenza. These resources are prepared with the help of our members and while not intended as a teaching resource they are an excellent source of reliable, up-to-date information.
Climate change, microbiology.
This primary assembly encourages pupils to think about the environmental impact of their actions.
It looks at how our actions in this country have an impact around the world. It also provides some ideas about how young people can address this problem.
This extract from 'Go Green: Having the Energy' gives a clear, illustrated explanation of what climate change is in terms that young readers will really understand. It also looks at the impact that climate change is already having on the world around us. &'Having the Energy&'; is published by Franklin Watts in 2010.
This 3 page worksheet directs students to research, discover, and record key information about global warming and alternative energy sources.
Exercises range from simple and literal fill in the blanks and matching definitions to writing short procedural and argumentative paragraphs explaining energy generation or arguing for and against investing in alternative energies.
Climate Change Crosswords is a pdf document containing 5 crosswords that focus on the greenhouse effect, global warming, and climate change - and what we can do about it.
There isa bonus puzzle about the Amazon Basin - perhaps the most significant region in terms of climate change. There's another crossword on The Might Mi__i__i__i River. (And then some more on Africa, Asia and Europe - for a rainy day.)
Climate change is real, it’s here, and it’s getting worse, but there’s hope. That’s the message of these crosswords.
Climate change is happening because of global warming which is happening because humans burn too much fossil fuel, cut down way too many trees, use cars instead of bicycles, throw away too much food, and farm too many animals.
The glaciers are retreating. The ocean is warming. The polar ice masses are melting. The sea level is rising. More extreme weather events are occuring. And the worst affected are the poorest people because they tend to live near the edges of rivers and the sea.
What can we do about it? Each puzzle includes suggestions.
Hopefully these crosswords educate students about what is happening to the earth’s climate and its people. Hopefully they’ll learn why it’s happening and how climate change can be stopped, or mitigated.
There’s something a little sneaky and tricky about crosswords. Kids feel compelled to finish them. Try them.
Climate change poses a serious threat to the planet and its people.
It is also a real source of anxiety for young people who are bombarded with messages about the risks of a warming planet.
This assembly takes a look at the impact that extreme weather events are having on young people around the world, and explores the links between our own behaviour and the changing climate.
A series of whiteboard activities, investigations and up to date case studies that support the teaching of climate change. This resource adds to the understanding of the Key Questions in UNIT G1, Changing Physical Environments, Investigating Climate Change section of the WJEC AS GCE in Geography.
These activities do not attempt to cover the whole theme and can easily be incorporated into other resources and teaching and learning approaches.
Explain the link between climate change, development and nutrition, and food supply
American politician and environmentalist Al Gore, writes of the connection between climate change and human life when he states, “We need to solve the climate crisis, it’s not a political issue; it’s a moral issue.” This viewpoint is reinforced in Unicef’s report ‘The impact of climate change on children’, which outlines how climate change has the potential to reverse development and threaten food supply, with children being the most vulnerable. This essay will approach this contentious issue by initially exploring how increased frequency of extreme weather events such as flooding and droughts in the locations of Ethiopia and Sudan, have and will continue to threaten harvests, creating food insecurity hindering socioeconomic development. It will then explore how the impacts of climate change will vary across the development continuum with LICs such as Haiti, unable to equip themselves with the necessary adaptation strategies, will see development falter. Finally it will investigate how the combined impact of natural increase and rising sea level will lead to a reduction of available arable land, therefore threatening food supply and nutrition. Overall, this essay concludes that whilst economic development and industrialisation may have been the trigger that tipped the balance of global warming, the subsequent impacts of this climate change may result in a reversal of said social and economic development.
Climate change is sometime a 'dry' topic and difficult to include much in the way of practical experiences for students. This worksheet contains a practical procedure that looks at the effect of temperature on the heart rate of Daphnia and the resultant impact on ecosystems. There is also provision for the analysis of results using 95% confidence limits and standard error. An engaging way to look at the impacts of climate change and global warming on living organisms.
Key words: Daphnia, heart rate, climate change, global warming, temperature, food chains, ecology, 95% confidence limits and standard error
- A Fryer model reading guide for students to fill out - In 3 formats (Fillable word form, Word document and PDF). The article is included in PDF format as well!
"Climate change can still be rather abstract for many among us. We hear about melting poles, a global increase in hurricane intensity or rising temperatures. For many Europeans this phenomenon does not seem to affect their daily lives. But this is not grasping the full picture. The food you consume daily, from its availability to its quality, is directly affected by climate change. Agriculture depends on climatic conditions, and is therefore highly exposed to climate change. "
Setup for easy of use for the teacher.
