Worksheets on Climate Change

Introduction

These worksheets are suited for natural and social science lessons for upper secondary education (some also suitable for pupils from the tenth grade onwards). In addition to the general description of the interactions and causes, they address the possible effects of climate change, especially in their regional differentiation. It is important to look at the issue of “climate change” not only from an environmental point of view but also to include the development dimension and the question of equity. This is the focus of the worksheets and the corresponding materials by offering the opportunity to draw up different case studies from developing countries, which the pupils can use in the exercises. >> mehr

Approaching Climate Change from an outer space perspective

This booklet is one result of an international workshop on climate change education held in Warsaw on 8–9 November 2013 and provides an introduction to global climate change by using satellite images. Germanwatch has experience of comparing live satellite images with archived footage of the earth, which has been successfully applied in educational work for almost ten years. Based on that experience, we have chosen an outer-space perspective as an entry point for education on climate change. >> mehr
