Climate Change 

 

How to do it

There are many different charities that help many causes around the world. This activity is about imagining yourself as the leader of a new  charity that needs to help one or more aspects of climate change. 

What does climate change mean? 

Climate change describes a change in the average conditions - such as temperature or rainfall - in a region over a long period of time. NASA  scientists have observed that the Earth’s surface is warming. Many of the warmest years have happened in the last twenty years and this is  affecting plant, human and animal life. The excessive use of cars, railways and air travel are all having a negative impact on the environment.  

Some of the effects of this are: 

Rising sea levels  

• Shrinking mountain glaciers 

• Change in flowers and plants blooming times 

• Faster melting of ice in places such as Greenland, Antarctica, and the Arctic 

Think about: 

What aspect of climate change you are interested in 

• Making sure that people will want to support your cause 

• The aspects of climate change that might need a charity to support them  

• What the people in your charity could do to raise money 

Think about: 

Designing posters to advertise your charity. Make sure they are bold and colourful 

• Designing a slogan (a short or striking phrase) for your charity 

• Thinking of an eye-catching name for your charity that everyone will remember 

• Many charities have a special symbol, so it might be worth researching some of these to give you some ideas for your charity’s design.

What you will learn 

Inventing a charity based on climate change will help you to: 

• Learn more about climate change 

• Use your imagination to design a slogan and a symbol 

• Improve your writing and art skills

Make an Eco Brick

How to do it

An ecobrick is a plastic bottle packed with used plastics and is used to make building bricks. It is a good way of recyclying plastic, which can  harm the environment. Ecobricks can also be used to make modular objects such as furniture and garden walls. 

How to make an eco-brick 

• First you need to choose your plastic bottle. Make sure it is one that you have already used as you don’t want to buy one just to make the  brick! A good size is between 500ml to 1.5 litres 

• Next you must prepare the plastic that is going in the bottle. This MUST be clean, otherwise bacteria may grow in the bottle. You could  use a stick to poke the objects into your bottle 

• Remember that the objects must not be able to be recycled. The more recycled plastic you fit into your bottle, the less plastic there will be  to harm the environment  

• It might be useful to weigh your brick because it needs to be strong to make a wall or to be used for building. It depends on the size of  your bottle but, as a rough guide, a 500ml bottle should weigh around 175g and a 1.5 litre bottle should weigh around 500g

• Be careful not to overfill your ecobrick as the lid may come off! 

There are lots of good ideas on the internet as to how to make your brick and what sort of objects you can put into it (see websites below)

What you will learn

Making your ecobrick will help you to: 

• Learn more about the environment 

• Help save the environment!
