A new ESA educational resource about climate

on 06 May 2021

There is a new educational resource available for teachers and students with age between 8 and 12 years old: ”Weather vs Climate - Understanding the difference between weather and climate.”

The concepts of weather and climate are often thought to be the same thing. In this set of activities pupils will learn the difference between weather and climate by analysing different statements, by collecting and analysing their own air temperature data and in the end they will write a short climate report for the year 2050. Pupils will learn about data collection, different weather and climate scenarios, and their significance to the Earth.

This classroom resource is part of a set of resources developed by ESA’s Education Office in collaboration with ESERO to support the Climate Detectives project. ESERO Romania is a join project of the European Space Agency (ESA) and the Romanian Space Agency (ROSA).

The educational resource in English can be downloaded from this page.
