Ask a Question

Synopsis
  • This resource provides an in-depth video introduction to climate change that discusses the need to reduce emissions, support and augment natural carbon sinks, and improve equality around the world.
  • Links to more information, a video discussion about feeding the world in a sustainable way, and downloadable graphics are also available on the website.
Teaching Tips

Positives

  • The video provides many break points to jump to specific topics.
  • It is easy for non-science learners to understand.

Additional Prerequisites

  • There are a number of videos and other online materials to use for extensions or to provide background knowledge for students.

Differentiation

  • The sections "What are Greenhouse Gases" and "What Do They Do" are very basic and could be used for younger students or non-science classes.
  • The downloadable graphics could be printed off or shared with students to provide follow-along materials, student slides, or content for a related assignment.
  • This resource can be a starting point for teachers to develop additional content. Additional content can be more more nuanced or tailored to your specific classes.
  • Other similar resources include this Wonder of Science video, this video about the history of climate science, and this video about natural solutions to climate change.
