Climate Change Lesson Ideas

Guest Author - Alissa Moy

Climate Change is a daunting topic, and one that can be difficult to plan a lesson about. Here are some creative and interesting ideas you can use to teach your homeschooler about Climate Change, while keeping your cool about such a "hot" topic.

Begin with an amazing and free virtual trip to The Liberty Science Center in New Jersey. This is a wonderful online program, set up by Scholastic, to introduce their latest Magic School Bus book. "The Magic School Bus and the Climate Challenge" is the latest adventure for Mrs. Frizzle and the gang. While the activity guide to go alog with the book will remain online, this field trip is only Tuesday April 20th, 2010 at 1pm. The link to register for this event, free of charge, is at the end of this article. It looks to be a neat virtual program. I cannot wait to see it with my son.

After you have attended the free, and informative field trip online, check out a reliable source for information on the topic of climte change. The Climate Change Kids Site, sponsored by the EPA, offers a plethora of information on the topic of global warming, without being unusually alarming for children. You can find the link for this unique site at the end of this article.

Encourage writing about Climate Change. Your homeschooler may want to list his or her concerns about this concerning topic, or maybe list questions they have about it. Some homeschoolers will want to plan ways that they can help. That is another great idea for a journal activity, too. Ask your child to come up with ways that your family can help the environment every day, and have him or her write these ways down, and share them at the family dinner table.

Read about ways we can all help with the environmental situation today with age appropriate books. Older homeschoolers and Science buffs will appreciate "The Encyclopedia of Weather and Climate Change: A Complete Visual Guide". Middle School homeschoolers and older elementary kids will like "A Hot Planet Needs Cool Kids: Understanding Climate Change and What You Can Do About It". This book offers solutions for today's concerned child. The "Everything Kids' Environment Book: Learn how you can help the environment-by getting involved at school, at home, or at play" (Everything Kids Series)
is a book that all ages of homescoolers can enjoy and learn from. Check out the book suggestions at Amazon for more teaching tools and ideas for learning about Climate Change.
