KS4: ages 14-16KS5: ages 16+Powerpoint

Explore the connections and engage with some of the lessons from lockdown to help make sense of a world in transition.

Social distancing, staying at home, being unable to go to school or work, wearing masks – these are strange and extreme times we are living in and making sense of them can be tough going.

This four-part inquiry explores the following questions:

  • Where did coronavirus come from and how did it spread?
  • Why might climate change cause more viruses in the future?
  • Why do coronavirus and climate change effect some people more than others?
  • What can we learn from coronavirus to empower our responses to climate change?
