We are currently developing climate change school lessons. These lesson plans will cover climate change and global warming for children from about ages 12 to 15 years old. A retired science teacher, who taught science for over 20 years, is writing the lessons. The lessons begin with atmospheric composition, the induced anthropogenic changes, and solutions to the problem. The lessons draw heavily on the International Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) reports. The science is sound, without political twist, and is up-to-date, plus it is free!
The lessons can be used freely within an educational context and come complete with activities and class exercises. The work cannot be sold, and will be covered by international copyright. In the meantime please use the site as a climate change and global warming resource center.
