Product Description
Climate Change and Vulnerable Populations

Curriculum Expectations:
1) Assess the environmental and economic impacts of using conventional (e.g., fossil fuel, nuclear) and alternative forms of energy (e.g., geothermal, solar, wind, wave, biofuel) (Grade 7 Science)
2)Explain how patterns of physical geography affect human activity around the world (Grade 7 Geography)
3) Describe ways human activity can affect sustainability/health of the environment (Grade 7 Geography)

Learning Goal: We are learning how climate change affects vulnerable populations like children, and how to present themes of climate change through art.

Lesson Components:
Minds On: Students brainstorm everything they know about climate change on their handout (set 3 min time limit). Students choose 1 idea to put on a post-it, add to class brainstorm.
Action:
- Students watch Charlotte’s video and/or use Paint for the Planet pictures. Students answer the question: “What themes of climate change do you see?” on their handout.
- Students watch the video on Climate Change and Children and/or use the attached flowchart. Students answer the question, “What was one thing that you hadn’t thought related to climate change?” (example answer: “I didn’t realize that children were more vulnerable to natural disaster, but now I realize that...”)
- Students create their own design that shows three effects of climate change
