Carbon dioxide and climate change

The effects of floods, drought and extreme weather now seem to be a regular part of the news.  These resources help to explore some of the global issues surrounding the impact of climate change, not only on the environment, but on real communities.  The list provides a range of activities, lesson ideas, film clips, careers resources, background information, practical tips and suggested teaching strategies.

This covers the following statements from the 2014 National Curriculum:

• the composition of the atmosphere
• the production of carbon dioxide by human activity and the impact on climate
• understand that scientific theories develop as earlier explanations are modified to take account of new evidence and ideas, together with the importance of publishing results and peer review
