Learning Pathway
Climate Change & COP26
This learning pathway establishes what climate change is by examining the underlying science as well as stories of people who have been directly affected by it. Pupils will then build on this knowledge by exploring what countries and governments are doing to combat the impacts through events like COP26, and identify what can be achieved through individual and collective action.
