The learning scenario “Climate Change – Just a BEGINNING” is associated with climate change and its effects on our lives and environment.
It is for the age group 14-18. The students will focus on three topics: the causes, effects and precautions to slow down. In order to investigate the topic in detail, the students perform in three subgroups. Each group works deeply on their topics and fills in the table in the Google document covering the same categories: causes, effects and precautions. They also develop their own presentations using Prezi. Moreover, they will share all their documents and the tasks in the virtual classroom (Edmodo) the teacher created. Students work simultaneously so that the teacher can see the progress of their work. As an additional value, the students learn to provide sources of their information usig Europeana.
The human effects on climate change
The lesson ends with online games (each group will prepare a short quiz using Quizlet or Kahoot), a discussion during which students share their opinions about the subtopics of the lesson scenario.
The classes aim to show the human effects on climate change, its causes and the possible solutions. Climate Change is one of the major problems of the world and it needs to be dealt with urgently.
The learning scenario is just a beginning for many other actions and discussions. While implementing that LS both the teacher and the students need to talk about many other issues.
The students explore the causes, effects and possible solutions to the subject matter as well as the texts of researches in climate change. As a result of that, they understand the knowledge of nature, the human effect on nature and the possible solutions.

Climate change is strikingly important for the world for our future generations as well as us. I think every teacher at least should perform an action project in school through out the year. So it is a must. Thanks dear Zehra for your making the world better place to live on.

Dear Zehra,
Unfortunately, OUR! ‘Unique’ world has the face to a big climate change problem. There are many kinds of causes of climate change.
The rapid development of technology is one of the most critical factors that causes climate change. But, humans’ effect on climate change is crucial. Because the ‘HUMAN-centered effect’ on climate change is the most destructive effect. In particular, humans, who use the technology unconsciously, uncontrolled, and greedy, led to an increase in carbon emissions released to nature. So, if we want to fight climate change, first the all! we must change human behaviors and thoughts on how we can use technology to save the future of the world and fight with climate change. HUMANS must rethink about the climate change problem. As a result, I believe that when ‘HUMAN CHANGE’, the problem of ‘CLIMATE CHANGE’ will also disappear!!
So, your scenario is useful for teachers and students to create awareness and excite them to be active challengers about ‘CHANGE.!
Best regards,

Your scenario will support raising awareness of climate change. At least it will help slow this process down. Moreover, it is powered by many web tools. Thanks for sharing!
