Combating Global Warming Mind Map

|
Ask a Question

Synopsis
  • This mind map on combating global warming includes information about the best ways to travel, how to conserve energy in the home, and how to be a catalyst for climate action.
Teaching Tips

Positives

  • This colorful mindmap contains text and illustrations.
  • Visual learners will appreciate how the branches of the mindmap show the relationship between the climate topics.

Additional Prerequisites

  • Teachers may want to remind students that individual actions are important, but that climate change must be addressed at a systemic level.
  • The mindmap is available in German, Chinese, Spanish, Portuguese, Vietnamese, Italian, Japanese, French, Persian, and Arabic.
  • The mindmap contains a few British spellings and terms. There is an American English version of the map available.

Differentiation

  • Students could choose climate topics (e.g., ocean acidification, air pollution, extreme weather) and make their own mindmaps.
  • Teachers could assign students elements of the mindmap to research and have students make an infographic for their topic. After, the class could make a giant mindmap with the infographics to display on a bulletin board or another prominent place in the school.
  • Other resources on this topic include this text and video on global warming, this table of climate change solutions, and this SubjectToClimate fortune-telling game on climate solutions.
Scientist Notes
This concept map does an excellent job of portraying how complicated combating climate change is. Please note that each individual claim has not been sourced, and while many of the suggestions will reduce your personal carbon footprint, it is important to remember that structural change is the only way to stop carbon emissions.
