The eTwinning climate challenge has been developed in consultation with British Council schools’ ambassadors and is designed for teachers of / and pupils aged between 3 to 19 (campaign offer open to UK schools only)
One of the many pedagogical strengths of taking part in eTwinning projects is increased student motivation through shared and collaborative project based learning with an international audience. It is highly recommended that both teachers and pupils work with their international partner schools to help instigate and empower pupils to tackle climate change together.
Challenges increase in difficulty as pupils progress from red (least challenging) to blue (most challenging) as per the thermometer colour code.It is up to teachers and preferably their eTwinning partners and/or pupils to decide whether to undertake all challenges and to progress in a linear or non-linear mode. The challenges have also been designed for homeschooling.
Each challenge links to supporting materials including eTwinning, British Council, United Nations and BBC pre-prepared content - designed to give pupils explorative learning opportunities.
