Climate Change – local and global

An enquiry approach

KS2: ages 7-11KS3: ages 11-14Website

This web-based resource follows on from – and replaces – a now out-of-print publication, ‘Climate Change~ local and global’, and draws upon the ideas of many Tide~ teacher groups working with Key Stages 2 and 3 in the West Midlands. It offers key challenges about climate change for teachers and learners.

The teachers who worked towards the publication focussed on an enquiry approach with their groups of upper primary and lower secondary learners. This approach engaged young people positively with the complexities of climate change, encouraging them to draw their own conclusions. It was based on four key questions:

1 What is climate change?
2 Why does it matter?
3 What can we do about it?
4 What have we learned and how?

The web resource follows this enquiry approach, offering a selection of activities for supporting the enquiry process. There is also a section setting out the educational policy context, plus a selection of recommended resources and useful links.
