Hi Pol

Discussing the children’s prior knowledge is important. As you said they will have many misconceptions and it is good to find out what these are before addressing them. Dividing Actions into easy and more difficult is a good idea. I like to discuss various actions with the children but then get them to focus on things that they can personally do. For example they can’t put solar panels on their house but they can spend less time on their games consoles and unplug devices when they are finished with them. They don’t have any say on what car their parents drive but they might choose to walk to a friend’s house rather than asking for a lift.
