Wind Farm Debate (Lower KS2)
Hold a knowledgeable and engaging debate about renewable energy.
Years: 3, 4
Curriculum Objectives: 3
Develop your pupils’ understanding of renewable energy, whilst improving their debating skills at the same time, with this fantastic set of resources about wind farm development!
Children can take on stakeholder roles and work cooperatively to research the pros and cons of installing wind turbines, before participating in a mock planning debate on the subject. An ‘official’ letter introducing the project, character role cards, teachers’ factual notes, and lesson plans have all been created to help you and your pupils on your way.
This activity would be perfect as a follow up from Sustainable Shaun’s Energy Crisis computer lesson, or as a standalone lesson incorporating a range of cross-curricular learning objectives.
- Consider and evaluate different viewpoints, attending to and building on the contributions of others.
- Listen and respond appropriately to adults and peers
- Maintain attention and participate actively in collaborative conversations.
