Climate Change and me: 10 educative videos for 5 to 12 years old
Nature-Action Quebec is proud to present a series of ten videos, available in English and in French, which tackle ten different themes, and, with help of examples, scientific experiments and animations, enable kids to understand the process of climate change on Earth.
A useful tool for teachers and parents
Not a day goes by without hearing about climate change, whether you are a kid in elementary school, or retired. With that in mind, Nature-Action Quebec and its partners wanted to create a popularized scientific tool to help explain to kids from 5 to 12 years old the phenomenons happening all around them, and to answer their questions about it. Some videos also present practical solutions, to help kids understand what they can actually do to help the planet.
The Climate Change and me episodes are available on YouTube, and on the Nature-Action Quebec website here. Downloadable documents containing scientific experiments to try at home are also available on the web page. Quizzes after every video let the kids test their newly learned knowledge, with the help of a teacher or parent.
Every episode is about 5 to 10 minutes, and the themes have been chosen so that kids of all ages can learn something. Thereby, some videos cover concepts that are more elaborate. Those are targeted to an older audience. Other episodes are simpler, adapted for younger kids starting elementary school.
The 10 themes are:
- Our home, the planet Earth
- Greenhouse effect
- The biomes and ecosystems
- The hydrological cycle
- The role of plants in the fight against climate change
- The impacts of climate change on the planet
- Sources of energy
- The waste cycle
- Adaptation to climate change around the world
- Think globally, act locally
