Climate Change Lesson plan

Here you can find the lesson plan and activities from the ‘Climate Change demonstration lesson – England’. During this lesson the children were divided into 3 groups. Each group worked on a carousel of activities. By the end of the lesson the children had completed all 3 activities.

Activity 3 – Endswall Flooding

Lesson plan Endswall

Activity 2 – Investigating Carbon Dioxide

Activity 2 – Carbon dioxide experiments

Activity 1 – The effects of Global Warming

Activity 1 – part 1

Activity 1 – part 2

We hope you enjoy this lesson as much as we did!

Italy Scientific Enquiry

As part of the topic ‘ Global Warming’ each partner school has planned and delivered a science experiment. It had to be a fair test and all schools had to follow a specific plan with key themes such as variables, hypothesis and method (see plan).

Italy chose to explore the greenhouse function of C02. If you would like to complete this experiment please follow the plan below.

Project Meeting Newcastle 2016

Our first project meeting was held in Newcastle in England at St. Columba’s Primary school. Visitors from our partner schools in Poland, Lithuania and Italy arrived in November 2016. They spent a week in our school and local area observing lessons, meeting children and staff and working on the project’s aims and objectives.

Our first project meeting was very productive with lots of actions agreed for the forthcoming topics. Please see a copy of the agenda and project  meeting minutes below.

Defining Global Warming

We have been learning all about the effects of Global Warming. We explored lots of different definitions of the term’ Global Warming’ and then together, came up with our own.

 After completing our own research we created information posters and leaflets to display in our school.

 We aimed the posters at the younger children in our school and the leaflets we created for parents.

 We hope this information spreads the important message to our school community.

Global Warming

The eldest children in our school have been learning about the effects of Global Warming and the damage that it has on our planet. Over the last few weeks we have worked on the impacts Global Warming has on many of the animals, towns and rural areas of our planet.

See what we found out below:

The Effects of Melting Ice Caps

Year 5 were investigating the effect of melting polar ice caps. The aim was to find out if these melting ice caps caused seal levels to rise.

We set up 2 identical experiments but modelled one on the North Pole and one on the South Pole. In one pole we placed the ice ‘in the sea’ and at the other pole we placed the ice ‘on the land mass’. Then we waited as the ice melted and recorded the differences in sea levels.
