The climate in our hands - Ocean and Cryosphere
Ocean and Cryosphere is the first teacher's guide book of the collection “The climate in our hands”, a series of volumes on the topic of climate change, written by the OCE team.
The aim of this multidisciplinary guide book is to support teachers in carrying out a range of inquiry-based turnkey activities on climate change and the ocean and cryosphere in their classrooms, and targets students from the upper end of primary school to the end of lower-secondary school (ages 9 to 15).
The guide book includes four main parts:
- Scientific Overview: a teacher-friendly overview of the scientific background needed in order to master the topics that will be discussed in the lessons;
- Pedagogical Overview: a brief overview of the different learning approaches that are proposed in the guidebook;
- Part 1 - We understand: the lesson plan, including a range of tunkey activities, targeting different levels of students;
- Part 2 - We act: Using a project-based approach, this section details some mitigation, awareness or adaptation projects that have been implemented in schools or communities. They may be used as an inspiration source in your own classroom!
