The hands-on and interdisciplinary approach you have discussed sounds excellent. Allowing the children to see locations first-hand and get a ‘feel’ for the place is so important. Simply discussing rising sea-levels in isolation can be difficult for a child – however, seeing the locality and the shops, businesses, etc. on the waterfront can bring the issue to life. Going to earlier modules, we looked at global interconnectedness and the link between local issues and global issues. Allowing the children to see all the dangers and risks of climate change that are present within a short trip of their school can highlight just how relevant this ‘global’ issue is locally.
