Classroom Ideas

Give the class the statement - "There is NO evidence for climate change." Explain to them that they are going to argue against this statement but must have evidence to do so. Show the class the clip and then in groups, give them a short period of time to write their response to the statement. They could then read out their statements in turn and could award each other scores depending on how many pieces of evidence they came up with and how well they explained their evidence and linked it to the statement.
