Resource Overview

This resource pack for KS3 (age 11-14) pupils is about climate change and the effects it will have on people around the world. It emphasises the increasing unpredictability of the weather and explores ways people might prepare for the, apparently inevitable, ‘wild weather’ - floods and droughts. It also introduces the notion of food security. Thank you to Practical Action for allowing us to share this resource.
