I’ve just discovered a great learning resource for anyone interested in climate change, that I think will be especially useful for teachers.
Called HIPPOCH, it explores the ‘HIPPO phenomena.’ That is habitat destruction, invasive species, pollution, population & overharvesting & breaks this information into short lessons.
At the moment there is only one short course – Climate Change. This consists of a 5-minute video created by NASA explaining climate change. Then individual lessons –
- What is global warming
- Climatic effects of climate change.
- Ecological effects of climate change &
- Ecosystems & climate change.
Each lesson comes with full information, easily adaptable for teachers. There are maps, diagrams & short videos. I read a lot about climate change, but came across information that was new to me.
Best of all, it is a free resource available to anyone over the internet. See – http://www.hippoch.com
