Climate Classrooms

The classroom revolution is here.

Climate Classrooms provides free, easily accessible lesson plans on climate science tailored to meet the needs of teachers teaching Years 7 to 12 STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics) subjects. We have worked in partnership with the ARC Centre of Excellence for Climate Extremes on many of these lesson plans.

The lesson plans describe how topics from the Australian curriculum can be taught by using examples and case studies related to climate science. They reference locally relevant impacts and examples and incorporate a range of learning activities and strategies. All resources have been developed in collaboration with scientists and teachers across Australia to ensure students receive lessons that are scientifically accurate and tie climate science into broader learning goals across the curriculum.

We have also worked with the international TROP ICSU project to create versions of the lesson plans suitable for use around the world. These can be found in the TROP ICSU lesson plan repository.


2021 Online Workshop

In partnership with the Australian Meteorological and Oceanographic Society the next Climate Classroom workshop will be help online and open to all Australian secondary school teachers.

This free workshop will bring together teachers and climate scientists together to develop teaching resources based on the latest science for lessons across the curriculum.

The workshop will run the morning of February 5 2021.
