Slide 1: Introduction
Climate change refers to long-term changes in temperature, precipitation, wind patterns, and other aspects of Earth's climate system.

Slide 4 - Slide

Provide a brief definition of climate change to familiarize students with the topic.
Slide 2: Causes of Climate Change
Climate change is primarily caused by human activities such as burning fossil fuels, deforestation, and industrial processes.

Slide 5 - Slide

Explain the main causes of climate change and emphasize the role of human activities.
Slide 3: Greenhouse Effect
The greenhouse effect is the natural process that keeps Earth's surface warm. However, human-induced greenhouse gas emissions have intensified this effect, leading to global warming.

Slide 6 - Slide

Introduce the concept of the greenhouse effect and its role in climate change.
Slide 4: Impacts of Climate Change
Climate change has various impacts, including rising sea levels, extreme weather events, biodiversity loss, and changes in ecosystems.

Slide 7 - Slide

Discuss the wide-ranging effects of climate change on the environment, society, and economy.
Slide 5: Evidence of Climate Change
Evidence of climate change includes rising global temperatures, shrinking ice caps and glaciers, and changes in precipitation patterns.

Slide 8 - Slide

Present scientific evidence that supports the occurrence of climate change.
Slide 6: Mitigation Strategies
Mitigation strategies aim to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and minimize the impacts of climate change. Examples include transitioning to renewable energy sources, energy efficiency improvements, and afforestation.

Slide 9 - Slide

Introduce various strategies to mitigate climate change and promote sustainable practices.
Slide 7: Adaptation Measures
Adaptation measures involve adjusting to the impacts of climate change. These include building infrastructure resilient to extreme weather events, implementing water conservation measures, and developing climate-resilient agriculture.

Slide 10 - Slide

Discuss the importance of adapting to climate change and highlight specific measures that can be taken.
Slide 8: Conclusion
Climate change is a pressing global challenge that requires collective action and individual responsibility. By understanding its causes, impacts, and potential solutions, we can work towards a more sustainable future.

Slide 11 - Slide

Summarize the key points covered in the lesson and emphasize the importance of addressing climate change.
Write down 3 things you learned in this lesson.

Slide 12 - Open question

Have students enter three things they learned in this lesson. With this they can indicate their own learning efficiency of this lesson.
Write down 2 things you want to know more about.

Slide 13 - Open question

Here, students enter two things they would like to know more about. This not only increases involvement, but also gives them more ownership.
Ask 1 question about something you haven't quite understood yet.

Slide 14 - Open question

The students indicate here (in question form) with which part of the material they still have difficulty. For the teacher, this not only provides insight into the extent to which the students understand/master the material, but also a good starting point for the next lesson.
