Climate Change In Primary School

Why should be Climate Change Education ?

Today, especially with the development of industry, the destruction of nature has reached such points that with global warming, climates have changed, and glaciers at the poles have begun to thaw. Air pollution, water pollution, soil pollution, forest decline, unplanned urbanization, nuclear waste and similar environmental problems continue to increase. This rapid deterioration of the natural environment is a harbinger of much larger disasters. In order to prevent this situation, measures must be taken around the world and all people must be aware. Sustainability is to ensure the use of natural resources without harming the conditions in which future generations can meet their needs, and to determine an appropriate social order and living standards

The aim of this study is to raise awareness about the causes of environmental problems with the various activities of the students participating in the project. With Climate Change Education, it is necessary to ensure that students both find solutions to problems and organize their lifestyles in order to reduce these problems in daily life..


Our eTwinning project, which was carried out with the participation of 7school teachers and students from  4 different countries, is within the scope of the My World Diary eTwinning Project, in the 2020-2021 academic year; 93 Primary School student (Turkey), 25 Elementary School student (Slovakia), 14 Elementary School student (Italy), 25 Elementary School student (Romania), 25 A primary school student (Greece) was given climate change awareness training.

   In the schools participating in the project, it consists of applications for students participating in climate change awareness education to raise awareness of climate change problems and to produce their own solutions to environmental problems.



At the beginning of the project; teachers completed the Exploring Nature-Based Solutions in Your Classroom course at European Schoolnet.

Students participating in the project were shown videos about problems. After the videos they watched, the students prepared a concept map related to the causes and consequences of climate change. Students took short notes in their learning logs after each activity. They made pictures of what they learned. In this way, students were able to discover the factors that cause problems.

The study continued with students discovering problems that cause climate change at home and outdoors. Students designed solutions for the problems they identified.

They designed a brochure for their parents to help waste electricity and water in their homes. Students made grocery bags from their old t-shirts. Thus, they applied their solutions at home. They grew seedlings from seeds of acorns for their environment.
