Climate 4 Classrooms
This project provides you with ideas and resources to deepen your pupils’ understanding of climate change and to help them to see this complex topic in a global context.
The project website was originally aimed at schools in Indonesia, China, Bangladesh, Mexico and the UK, but it features content that could support your school’s international partnership.
Our changing climate will impact at the global, national and local scales. Through some of the latest scientific data and projections C4C provides curriculum-linked teaching resources about climate change for pupils. Its resources include:
interactive data sets showing the latest global and national climate predictions
climate science brought to life by the experts
case studies investigating global, national and local impacts and solutions
guidance for teachers on using the resources.
The C4C education pack is to support schools around the world to teach, think and talk about the global and intercultural dimensions of climate change. This pack contains learning activity ideas, sample lesson plans, tips and further resources to use with pupils aged 7 – 16. Learning activities are grouped around the following three themes.
1. Weather and climate.
2. Climate Change: causes, evidence and future predictions.
3. Making a difference and finding solutions.
Schools are encouraged to follow these three themes and take their pupils on a journey of understanding from learning about weather and climate to engaging with issues surrounding climate change and then developing community action plans to find solutions and make a difference to their environment and community.
