Free climate change teaching resources aimed at seven to 16-year-olds have been published ahead of the COP26 in Glasgow.

The resources are a collaboration between the Met Office and Esri UK and aims to teach students about climate change and its impact on their local area.

They combine the latest Met Office projections with Esri UK’s interactive maps and dashboards and focus on how climate change will impact our daily lives over the next 50 to 100 years.

The resources are aimed at geography teachers in key stage 2, 3 and 4, and three different resource packs examine weather, climate and how climate change will affect key areas of everyday life, including transport, agriculture, health, and energy.

Example resources include side-by-side comparisons of climate now and in the future, making it easier for students to see changes in temperature or rainfall, for example. Other teaching aids examine the chance of future heatwaves (pictured above), droughts, floods and wildfires.
