Need to teach an important lesson on climate change? What to generate discussion and help the children to reflect and make some changes? This is a great short lesson that I have used with my class.
No prep – ready to go with enough prompts to let you teach in your style.
Additional worksheet activities to help children consolidate their learning.
If you use an interactive whiteboard you can life the png flattened images and import them into your IWB programme or write straight on the slides if you have this function. Other than that it also stands alone if you simply have a projector it can work with a traditional whiteboard and pen accessory.
