👋 Hello and welcome!!
This interactive Discovery Pack on Climate is a great way to introduce enquiring minds to this increasingly important topic. There’s so much misinformation around that it can be difficult to know where to start when faced with questions like: What is climate change? What is causing it? Am I making it worse? What will the future be like? How will it affect me? What can we do about it?
This carefully curated Discovery Pack has been professionally prepared by an experienced and qualified subject specialist. By focussing on evidence based science learners will be able to independently explore the topic before making up their own minds about further learning or other action. Lessons are based on the UK’s National Curriculum for Science with additional learning to broaden and expand interests… as is the Home Ed way!
The Discovery Pack comprises six engaging lessons, each of which guides learners on a journey through a curated selection of the best online resources, which they can explore at their own pace. With this newly discovered knowledge, learners use differentiated worksheets to help them organise their thinking and extend their understanding via evaluation and analysis. Learners can then use answersheets to independently check their comprehension; also a useful opportunity for parents/carers to get involved if they would like. Self-marking quizzes provide quick spot checks and motivational boosts.
The Pack is likely to suit learners aged approximately 11-16 as tasks start around England and Wales’ Key Stage 3 (KS3) level of learning and progress into Key Stage 4 (KS4/GCSE) concepts. The lessons follow the structure of our 6-week live tutorials on Climate. The Discovery Pack could be completed before the tutorials, alongside the tutorials, after the tutorials or completely independently of the tutorials if preferred.
Wherever you are in the world, whatever your child’s goals and ambitions, thank you for choosing to work with us. We hope your child enjoys studying this topic as much as we’ve enjoyed creating it.
Be Different, Together.
