Lesson outcomes: Learners will be able to • Describe and share their feelings about the things they love about planet earth • Describe how they think grandparents would like to leave the planet for future generations that include their grandchildren (environmental legacy) • Evaluate their carbon footprint and reflect on how they feel about this • Evaluate whether they have a responsibility to change their daily actions to reduce their footprint and understand that people acting together can have an impact on reducing climate change

Key words Global warming is the gradual increase in the overall temperature of the earth's atmosphere. Climate change is a change in global or regional climate patterns, in particular a change apparent from the mid to late 20 th century onward. Carbon dioxide A gas in the air around us. Carbon footprint The amount of ‘carbon’ energy (coal, oil or gas) we each use and the amount of carbon dioxide we then contribute to the air.

The SDG Goal Climate Change – the Facts World facts • Climate change is

The SDG Goal Climate Change – the Facts World facts • Climate change is now affecting every country on every continent. • Global emissions of carbon dioxide (CO 2) have increased by almost 50 per cent since 1990. Target By 2030 to ensure all people are well prepared for hazards related to climate change and natural disasters.

What’s your footprint? Do you know what a ‘carbon footprint’ is? Imagine stepping in

What’s your footprint? Do you know what a ‘carbon footprint’ is? Imagine stepping in a muddy puddle, and then walking over a clean, white carpet. Not only would you be in trouble, but you would also leave a trail of footprints behind you. Footprint trail A carbon footprint trail is an imaginary trail that we leave when we use electricity, oil and gas in our homes, schools and workplaces, and petrol in our cars and vehicles. Every time we use a ‘carbon’ energy (coal, oil or gas), it gives off CO 2, and adds to the problem of climate change We are leaving a ‘muddy’ carbon footprint on the Earth, which can be measured in kilograms of CO 2 released into the air every year. • https: //bpes. bp. com/collection/carbon-footprint-toolkit • www. cooltheworld. com/kidscarboncalculator. php

The size of your carbon footprint indicates how much impact you have on the environment. The world average is about 4, 000 kg of carbon dioxide person per year. In the UK it is nearly 10, 000 kg person per year.

Task 3 How do I contribute to climate change? What is my eco footprint

Task 3 How do I contribute to climate change? What is my eco footprint ? Complete the survey Whether we realize it or not, we all emit carbon dioxide, • one “ of the greenhouse gases, through our day-to-day activities. The amount we emit is referred to as our “carbon footprint. ” The bigger the footprint, the more carbon dioxide that comes from each of us as a result of the choices we make.

One elephant or two? In the UK, every person has a carbon footprint of nearly 10, 000 kg of CO 2. That is the weight of two fully-grown Indian elephants! To stop the Earth heating up any more, this needs to be no more than 3, 000 kg person (less than an elephant each). Each one of us needs to reduce the amount of energy we use.
