An interactive climate change toolkit for primary schools in Grenada, Carriacou and Petite Martinique

Why a toolkit on climate change? In Grenada, the science, geography and social studies curriculum includes some components of climate change and environmental stewardship.

However, only limited resources are available for educators to get students actively involved in the topic of climate change. This Grenada-specific toolkit includes a lot of child-friendly illustrations, such as stickers and posters for the classroom.

Most units are discussion-based and exercises will be activity-based, some include field-trips.

The target groups of the toolkit are educators and primary school students (grade 3-6). Participating students could be involved in community and research projects in their respective parishes.

What is part of the toolkit?

  • The teacher manual
  • The worksheet collection
  • A student passport (each student will receive a passport which will be filled out after each unit)
  • Stickers for each unit (colour & B/W, for passport after completion of a unit)
  • Posters for each unit (for classroom)

See the download section to the right.

What are the subject areas?
There are 8 units in total. They are all linked to climate change and each unit includes practical activities and discussions.

  • Unit 1: What is Climate Change? - “Time in a Bottle”
  • Unit 2: Weather & Climate - “Who wants to be a meteorologist?”
  • Unit 3: Ocean Pollution - “Storm Drain Stenciling”
  • Unit 4: The Greenhouse Effect - “Feeling hot, hot, hot…“
  • Unit 5: Energy - “Light up my life”
  • Unit 6: Mangrove Preservation - “MagnificentMangroves”
  • Unit 7: Waste Reduction - “Make your own shopping bag”
  • Unit 8: Sustainable Fishing - “Let’s go Fishing”

Where can you get it from?
