Climate Change: An Introductory Lesson Plan for Middle School


As a middle school teacher (for age group 10-14 years), you can use this lesson plan to introduce climate change and its impacts to your students. Climate change can be complex and is often difficult to explain to middle school students. It is especially important for middle school teachers to teach this critical issue meaningfully and yet engage them positively (with minimal doom and gloom associated with the current climate crisis).

In this lesson plan, students will be introduced to the basics of climate change, which is one of the most significant issues of our time. Students will further learn about the causes of climate change and will explore possible climate solutions.

Learning Outcome

The tools in this lesson plan will enable students to:

  1. Get an introductory understanding of climate change and its global impacts
  2. Learn about the causes and effects of climate change
  3. Discuss and explore solutions to the climate crisis
