The `Shout about climate change' pack, which links in with the National Curriculum, contains key facts, ideas for lesson plans, assemblies and activities such as how to design an eco car, a climate quiz or role play. The pack also has details of a free DVD with visual resources and a poster design competition. Topics can be studied as a series of lessons for teachers of Citizenship, PSHE, Geography, Science, Maths, English and Art.
Friends of the Earth's education co-ordinator, Ingela Andersson, said: "We've had some great feedback from teachers who have reviewed the pack for us. They have said that the pack is easy to use, fits the age group and National Curriculum requirements and the activities are easily adaptable to different levels of difficulty.
"We hope that the pack will get young people interested in climate change, as they are the generation who will be most affected. We really need to start reducing greenhouse gas emissions in the next ten years and continue for decades, if disaster is to be averted."
For more information or a review copy of the DVD, details of case studies of schools taking part or case studies of schools with renewable energy schemes, please call Kath Stipala, Media Officer, Friends of the Earth Tel 020 7566 1649.
