This teacher led programme joins up the dots for pupils on the science of climate change:  extreme weather, rising sea levels, bio-diversity, the greenhouse effect, temperature, the carbon cycle,  the water cycle, humidity, pollutants, and our human impact since the industrial revolution.

There are 4 Modules with 24 Lessons comprising 11 core experiments and almost 100 activity ideas.  Each Lesson is fully interactive (whiteboard, PC or tablet) with a video or main activity that can be used as part of a  sequence or as a standalone resource, a prompt for discussion, a lesson starter, an independent extension, a consolidation activity or as a homework task.

Pupils will learn new information, conduct tests, experiments or investigations and record, compare and discuss their results. Oh and did we mention that we’ll be cleaning the air in the classroom using space station science as well?

So, why not join Terra, Luma and Al on a journey to create a better, greener world one classroom at a time!

At the National Institute of Teaching and Education, we believe that the knowledge of the impact of climate change and the understanding of how we can protect our planet should sit at the very heart of school curricula. Teachers, therefore, need programmes like Our Classroom Climate to engage their pupils in changing the world’s attitude to protecting our environment.
