Primary Schools: Introduction to Climate Change

Climate Ready Classrooms for Primary Schools introduces pupils to key concepts surrounding climate change and climate action, through different activities and resources.

The 4 units cover, respectively:

  • Climates 
  • Climate Change
  • Climate Justice
  • Climate Action


Each unit provides links to relevant materials as well as suggestions of events and organisations you could connect with to expand learning opportunities. Stories from Climate Ready Classrooms across Scotland are shared to start conversations about the possibilities for your own
school. You will also find links to Curriculum for Excellence Experiences and Outcomes which you could develop within or between
other subjects. 

Resources could be used across a school term or half term with activities supporting your application for an Eco-Schools Green Flag Award. Units are designed to be sequentially complementary to each other but equally could be used in isolation or integrated as works best for your learning context.

The toolkit is not intended as a textbook nor to prescribe activities or ideas but rather to inspire and improve confidence in learning and teaching relating to climate change. In this way, schools and young people especially are encouraged to use their voice to build hope, connect with
others and engage in climate action.

The course can be delivered in whichever format is most suited to your pupils and can be discussed once you have registered via the online form below.
