This introductory video to the video series, A Sick Planet, sets the stage for learning by briefly describing how the planet is sick. It introduces the term "Rapid Climate Change" and asks some reflection questions of the viewer. It also explains the topics of climate basics to be covered in future videos, such as climate and weather, carbon dioxide and the effects of climate change worldwide. It also promises to demonstrate how the students can be part of the solution with simple and practical everyday actions.
This video would be best used to set the stage for learning about climate change and weather. Students could be asked to try and find some of the answers to the questions posed in the video or to research the terms used. At the end of the unit the students could watch the video again to assess their learning and to see if they can answer the questions asked.
