Wild weather

Designed for KS3 (11-14 years) this unit of work looks at the impact of climate change, in particular flooding and drought, and how science can be used to mitigate against it. 

Comprehensive teacher's notes, pupil worksheets and a range of support materials, including Powerpoints, technical briefs and videos, reduces preparation time to a minimum and results in a series of rich, engaging, enquiry -based lessons backed up by secondary sources of information.
