Climate change is impacting my local area in many ways. A physical impact that the change in climate is having on my local area is the change in weather and flooding. Flooding has become more of an issue in the recent past, and this is very clear for all to see. Areas of the town which never suffered from the ill effects of flooding are now flooded on almost an annual basis. The children could keep a record of flooding in the town and areas effected. We could study what is causing flooding to be more common and how to prevent flooding in the future. Monitoring the level of rainfall would also be an interesting task. Children from all classes could participate in the study in collating and interpreting the data.

Slowing down climate change is not just a topic for governments and agencies, it needs to happen at local level and the children need to be encouraged to believe this.
