Year 8 - Climate Change Essays

The Year 8s have been exploring the causes and consequences of global climate change. They have investigated the more global problems of rising temperatures but also the more local impact of an increased amount of mosquitoes in Switzerland. Students initially researched the causes, consequences and whether we can slow down the changes and recorded their findings on mindmiester. They then wrote an extended piece of writing in a 90 minute lesson on how climate change may impact them when they are 65. Examples of the mindmeisters and the essays can be found below.
