Climate Futures Co-Taught Lesson with Minecraft: Education Edition
November 30, 2021Free Funded by Minecraft Education
Let's explore climate change together!
Explore Climate Futures with us – immersive new worlds and lessons in Minecraft on the topic of climate change, developed in partnership with Met Office, the UK’s national meteorological agency. Students visit a farm and a forest to study the impact on our environment over time.
Inside this 90-minute co-taught lesson on Tuesday, November 30th, you and your class will explore Minecraft: Education Edition to learn more about climate change, in addition to learning from Dr. Rosie Oakes from the Met Office!
Dr. Oakes is a senior climate scientist at the Met Office. She works with people around the world to understand how they are affected by climate change and what information they need to help them plan for the future. She is also passionate about inspiring the next generation of climate scientists and is really looking forward to working with you all in this class.
We’ll brainstorm new ways to help achieve the UN Sustainability Development Goals (SDG9 & 13)!
We'll be your co-teacher for this coding adventure
