Syllabus

2. Consequences of Global Climate Change

Climate change and the hydrosphere, atmosphere and biosphere, including:

  • water stored in ice and oceans, and changing sea levels
  • carbon stored in ice, oceans and the biosphere
  • incidence and severity of extreme weather events, including drought
  • spatial changes in biomes, habitats and animal migration patterns
  • changes to agriculture, including crop yields, limits of cultivation, soil erosion

Synthesis, evaluation and skills opportunities

The uneven spatial distribution of effects and uncertainty about their timing, scale and impacts for individuals and societies

The Impacts of Climate Change

This page provides a huge range skill-based activities and well chosen videos to explore the global and regional patterns of climate change impacts both in the last 100 years and projected into the future. Students explore the global pattern and identify regions most affected by global warming, through a number of interactive resources produced by media services such as the BBC as well research organisation like NASA and the IPCC. The page is full of  accompanying work sheets. In total there 16 class and assessment activities to choose from, which could be delivered in their entirety or selected as you choose as part of a series of lessons.

Impacts of climate change on people and places, including health hazards, migration and ocean transport routes

The Impacts of Climate Change on People and Places

This page provides a number of resources that enable students to investigate the impacts of climate change on people and places at a number of different scales. It begins with a recap-syntheses activity that reinforces existing student knowledge. It then develops student knowledge based around a focused framework for student noting for a video library based on three regions of Asia, Africa and North America.
