The Carbon Cycle (European Space Agency)

Carbon compounds are essential to life. A range of natural processes cycles carbon between the ocean, the land and the atmosphere. The key to controlling climate change is understanding and managing this carbon cycle – cutting down emissions of carbon to the atmosphere while increasing the amount of carbon stored in other places. This printable…

Taking the Pulse of the Planet KS4 (European Space Agency)

Satellites offer a unique global perspective on the Earth’s climate. Earth observation satellites take daily images that reveal a wealth of detail about our changing planet and we now have over three decades of observations describing some of the most important climate variables. These are essential for setting up climate models and checking their accuracy….

Planetary Heat Pumps (European Space Agency)

The sea is incredibly good at storing heat. So good, that just the top three metres of the ocean contain as much heat as the entire atmosphere. The ocean’s ability to accumulate, transport and slowly release the energy it receives from the Sun makes it one of the key regulators of weather and climate on…

Urban Hotspots (European Space Agency)

The urban heat island effect is a phenomenon that leads to temperatures in cities often being higher than those in surrounding rural areas. This effect is amplified during heatwaves. As the world becomes more urbanised, and heatwaves become more likely due to climate change, building cities that reduce this effect becomes ever-more important. This printable…

Biodiversity and Habitat Loss (European Space Agency)

We share our planet with millions of other living species. Earth’s biosphere is undergoing rapid changes that have an impact on the natural cycles that control climate, as well as more immediate effects on living things. Global warming, wildfires, deforestation and other human activities, trigger dramatic changes in natural habitats, challenging the adaptation and survival…

A Passage Opens (European Space Agency)

Navigators have been attempting to travel the famous Northwest Passage between mainland Canada and its islands for centuries but few have succeeded. The loss of Arctic ice as a result of global warming may allow ships to use this route more frequently. But the opening of the Northwest Passage is a worrying signal of changes…

Food Production and Insects (University of Edinburgh – Open.ed)

There are five lessons of 50min each. They are designed to be incorporated into the school’s curriculum surrounding the food production unit for National 5 (biology) students. Providing that classes are taught when the food production unit would normally be delivered, these lessons can act as a detailed blueprint of how to teach the two…
