Lesson Plan: Climate Change and Risks of New Pandemics

As an Undergraduate Biological Sciences or Environmental Sciences teacher, you can use this lesson plan to teach your students about zoonosis, the increased risk of inter-species virus spillover due to climate change, infectious diseases such as COVID-19 and their modes of transmission.

Lesson Plan: Demography and Pandemics in a Warming World

As an Undergraduate Social Sciences or Biological Sciences teacher, you can use this lesson plan to teach your students about demography, population trends, urbanization, and the role of demographics in the spread of infectious diseases such as COVID-19 and the increased risk of pandemics due to climate change.

Lesson Plan: Photosynthetic Pathways and Physiological Responses to Climate Change

As an undergraduate Biological Sciences teacher, you can use this set of computer-based tools to teach about differences in photosynthesis in different types of plants (C3, C4 and CAM) and how they are affected by climate change: which is more resilient or less resilient. You can discuss all these basic concepts in plant physiology using the case study: Uganda’s massive expansion of Bamboo, a C3 plant, to address the issue of heavy deforestation, under changing climatic conditions.
