"The resource to teach about our environment, climate change and much more"
This updated pack provides insights, material, questions and many resource links for creating lesson plans or for student to learn by themselves.
Climate change has become a hot topic in the last year. With the government producing their own resources for school, Edukits has updated our kit to highlight theories and scientific principles that many have not considered. This kit engages students to think and question popular theories and also guidelines to help student think about and create constructive solutions.
Student should be given every opportunity to use the resources and technology in their hands to lead by example as problem solvers. This kit of guides can help towards this plus provide educational material on all aspects on the environment.
The contents of this kit, divided into three sections of learning levels: Primary, Intermediate and Secondary, are designed to help you teach students of all ages the importance of protecting our environment, climate change, alternative energy and developing a healthy life-style.
