Modelling climate change

About this unit

Software:    Fate of the World / Climate Change Challenge / LogiCity, FreeMind, Camtasia StudioTM, Windows Live™ Movie Maker / Windows Movie Maker

Outcome:     Short edited video containing a screencast, relevant images and interview or video diary

Are the children in your class concerned about global warming? Do they understand how climate projections are made and what factors can affect climate change? This unit provides an opportunity for children to explore one or more interactive models of climate change, discovering for themselves the assumptions that underpin the model and linking these to their own independent research. Children compile a short video piece documenting their findings, which includes edited screencasts, still images and video diary or interview elements.
