Every Drop Counts
Students will learn about the effects of climate change on water in the environment through a variety of games and activities. They will investigate how the permeability of different surfaces affects urban flooding. Students will explore some of the sustainable features which help us to reduce our green-house gas emissions in the Centre. They will have the opportunity to demonstrate their understanding of climate action through an achievable personal behaviour change.
- To understand the science of climate change and how this impacts precipitation patterns
- To understand the science of climate change and how the Centre is trying to reduce it carbon emissions and impact on climate change.
- To investigate how different surfaces have different permeability and evaluate those findings while considering urban flooding.
- To connect their findings with water issues in their locality
- To demonstrate their understanding of climate action through an achievable personal behaviour change.
National curriculum links
- planning different types of scientific enquiries to answer questions, including recognising and controlling variables where necessary
- taking measurements, using a range of scientific equipment, with increasing accuracy and precision, taking repeat readings when appropriate
Human and physical geography
- describe and understand key aspects of: the water cycle, types of settlement and land use, and the distribution of natural resources including energy, food, minerals and water
