Student Activities - Adapting to Climate Change

STAV Publishing has developed a suite of activities about adapting to climate change. The activities are suitable for VELS levels 5 & 6. Yvonne Sanders, co-author of STAV Publishing's very popular Better Links book (now out of print), is the author. The files have live links embedded and will work well with an electronic whiteboard, or they can be printed in hardcopy and used in conjunction with the accompanying teacher notes to access the relevant urls. The full package includes fifteen activities (seven for level 5 and eight for level 6), suggested answers, links to VELS and comprehensive teacher notes.

The activities are based on the video clip called Adapting to Climate Change, produced by the Department of Sustainability and Environment.

New Greenhouse Gas calculator: Level 5 Activity 4 and Level 6 Activity 6 require the use of a Greenhouse calculator. The EPA has recently released a new calculator which might be a useful alternative to the one used in the activities.
