Science – the Big Questions
This Cape Farewell video features a conversation at the National Oceanography Centre about how scientists from different disciplines work together to answer the big questions. This can be used to review some of the ways that scientists have arrived at their ideas about global climate change. It offers a way of summing up what students have learnt from the series of activities about global climate change, plankton, food chains and the way that scientists work.
Activity J - What makes a good argument? introduces students to the features of a good argument. Students are asked to analyse a series of increasingly complex arguments related to the issues of climate change and global warming.
Notes on the activities and their use, with the video clip in lessons, are given in the Teachers’ Guidance. There is no Activity K, despite the information in Appendix B of the Teachers’ Guidance.
