For the last 2 weeks we have studied the difference between climate and weather. We checked reliable sources for information to discover the causes of climate change. As a class we concluded that the meaning of climate change is: a change in the usual patterns of climate in specific places.
We worked in groups to make posters and created a box for the classroom to put all our research in. We thought pollution, wasting water and electricity and not recycling were the biggest causes of climate change. We were surprised to learn that eating meat and overfishing are even bigger causes.
We have been studying the effects of Climate Change in Rome and Europe with focus on how animals, plants, people and weather suffer. After researching and discussing we determined that the 4 most critical effects are: ice caps melting, rising temperatures, increased severe weather and animals being endangered. We created posters and are preparing a video.
