Persuasive writing, climate change

(1)
A three week KS2 writing unit with a powerful environmental theme. All lesson plans, PowerPoints and activitiy resources included - it’s ready to go. Pupils explore a one-sided argument about fossil fuels, and then create their own persuasive writing about food waste. Turn your class into eco-heroes! Teach children about persuasive devices, and encourage them to use these skills to make a positive change. I used this project in Y4, but it could be quickly adapted for any KS2 class - all resources are fully editable. If you buy this resource, ignore the preview images (these are just png screen shots) and open the zip folder. Inside this folder, you will find full versions of all plans, presentations and tasks, organised into lesson-by-lesson folders for ease of use. Please also see my new ‘climate change’ unit, Waste Monsters, aimed at upper KS2. https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/resource-12966461

Environment and Climate Change KS1

4 Resources
Environment and Climate Change KS1 A collection of KS1 resources that focus on the environment, climate change, plastic and pollution, and recycling. The 4-lesson unit includes the following: Caring for living things In this lesson, the children will learn about the responsibilities associated with caring for living things. We will talk about ‘needs’ and reflect on the various things animals and plants must have if they are to survive. The students will read Don’t let them disappear by Chelsea Clinton, before completing a conservation poster activity linked to the text. All about recycling In this lesson, the children will learn about recycling. We will discuss the reasons why recycling is so important as well as taking a closer look at the different types of materials that can and can’t be recycled. The students will read Why do we recycle? by Jen Green, before completing an activity linked to the text. The lesson includes a case study starter, a story with accompanying questions, a recycling sorting task and a debate-style plenary. Plastic and pollution In this lesson, the children will learn about the vast quantity of plastic that is finding its way into rivers and oceans. We will discuss the impact of plastics on wildlife and the consequences of microplastics entering the food chain . The students will read A planet full of plastic by Neal Layton, before completing an awareness leaflet activity linked to the text. The lesson includes a case study starter, a story with accompanying questions, an awareness leaflet activity and a plenary task. Global warming / climate change In this lesson, the children will learn about climate change and the reasons why our world is getting warmer.

Students describe how photosynthesis is the key process for food production Students can explain that photosynthesis is the process which produces biomass for life Students make decisions based on the evidence and arguments, work with data which shows distribution of results, identify patterns and trends in data, making inferences and drawing conclusions. Students describe some of the biological factors affecting levels of food security and know that food security is having enough food to feed a population. Students describe biological factors which threaten food security including: increasing birth rate; changing diets in developed countries means scarce food resources are transported around the world; new pests and pathogens that affect farming; environmental changes that affect food production, such as widespread famine occurring in some countries if rains fail; the cost of agricultural inputs; conflicts that have arisen in some parts of the world which affect the availability of water or food.

I have written five climate change stories with accompanying story resources such as play scripts, songs and cross-curricular activities. I hope they help you to teach your children about this difficult subject in a fun way. The stories are inspired by articles from the National Geographic magazines, ensuring that the information about climate change on which they are based is accurate and current. The resources are designed to last for half a term. The fourth story is called “What’s the matter Mr. Bear?” This is a story about the melting ice in the Arctic and the affects this is having on polar bears’ ability to hunt for food. The story also deals with more general themes such as friendship, fear, being kind, helpful and loving. These resources are ideal for curious young minds that love a good story and want to learn about *their *changing world. Hope you enjoy using these resources!

Climate Change Crosswords

(0)
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.

The second story is called “A New Home.” This is a story about deforestation in Uganda in Africa and the affects this is having on chimpanzees who live in the forests there. The third story is called “The Blue Bluefin.” This is a story about overfishing in the South Pacific seas and the affects this is having on bluefin tuna fish and other sea creatures living there. The fourth story is called “What’s the matter Mr. Bear?” This is a story about the melting ice in the Arctic and the affects this is having on polar bears’ ability to hunt for food. The fifth story is called “Toms and Bloomers save the day.” This is a story about fertilizer pollution in the five Great Lakes in Canada and the affects this is having on the lakes’ ecosystems and biodiversity. The stories also deal with more general themes such as friendship, love, fear, tolerance and compromise. These resources are ideal for curious young minds that love a good story and want to learn about their changing world. Hope you enjoy using these resources!
