School

As part of the PIKee-Project, teaching materials were developed for different class levels that provide interdisciplinary and independent impulses for dealing with climate change and its effects. Teaching units for interdisciplinary project work (research workshops) and subject-specific teaching units for geography, mathematics, natural sciences and English are available. All materials offer the opportunity to work with the web portal KlimafolgenOnline-Bildung.de

Materials in German (except from ‘Talking about Statistics’) are available for the following topics:

The Forest Ecosystem and its Function as a Carbon Reservoir

In this teaching unit, the students work out the consequences for the forests in the Berlin/Brandenburg region in cases of reaching or failing  the two-degree Celsius temperature  limit. They evaluate these consequences taking into account the function of the forest as a carbon store.

A warmer World – also in my Region?

With the work material and the educational portal KlimafolgenOnline-Bildung.de the students analyse the development of the mean temperature for the period from 1901 to 2100 for a region in Germany. They calculate differences, illustrate their data, evaluate them and, on this basis, write an appeal to a politician.

Talking about Statistics and Climate Change

In this unit, students learn new ways to discuss statistics and at the same time deal with climate change using climateimpactsonline.com.

The Consequences of Climate Change for Germany

Starting with the term “climate model”, the students will deal with possible regional consequences of climate change. With the help of the teaching material offered, the construction of climate models can be developed in a way that is suitable for students. The worksheets offer different approaches, which can be used alternatively or differentiating. After possible consequences for the whole of Germany have been investigated, the extent to which a possible climate change would have an effect on the own federal state or region is then to be investigated.

Climate Change Changes – Identifying Regional Impacts and Developing Measures

This unit focuses on the identification of regional consequences and the development of measures. The materials can be used in political, economic and social studies, but are also suitable for interdisciplinary cooperation with German or English lessons.
