Climate Change Action Pack

About the Climate Change Action Pack

Elementary teachers have told us that they require hands-on, easy to follow lesson plans and activities that are curriculum based. Our kit directly addresses these needs. The Action Pack addresses the units of weather, habitat and adaptation, and energy, all of which are part of the Atlantic Canada Science Curriculum. With its numerous cross-curriculum links, the kit also addresses global studies, geography, history, and components of social studies as well as the math and language arts curriculum. The kit is flexible enough to use in any grade 4-6 classroom. Extension activities are included as well as information sheets on other existing programs and projects. Some of our partners offered lesson plans and extension activities, including Destination Conservation, PlantWatch, Oasis, Globe, the Climate Change Calculator, and Project Wild.

The Nova Scotia connection

Another important concept that has been followed throughout the Action Pack is that the lessons should have strong connections to Nova Scotia. The predicted effects of climate change are different from region to region. Therefore, the information presented in lessons concerning temperature changes in Alberta, or waste reduction methods in Toronto, would not necessarily apply to Nova Scotia. Lessons that are directly linked to this province are more applicable to our lives, easier for students to relate to, and make it easier for them to internalize the concepts by building on previous knowledge and interests.

Introducing many of the CCAP's lessons are sheets entitled "Stop for a Background Check!". The

initial purpose is to introduce the teacher to concepts that will be addressed in the lesson, and

to provide information about other organizations in Nova Scotia that could provide further

connections between Climate Change and the classroom.

Curriculum links

Guides for grade 4-6 are provided within the binder demonstrating how to connect "Specific Learning Outcomes" (SLOs) from the Atlantic Canada Science Curriculum and the Common Framework of Science Learning Outcomes to individual lessons in the binder. The lessons address almost all of the related SLOs that teachers are responsible for from grades 4 to 6.
