Year 10 Climate Change Resources

11 Oct 2020

These brand new resources where developed to cover the listed below sections of the Year 10 Science Curriculum.
They learn about the relationships between aspects of the living, physical and chemical world that are applied to systems on a local and global scale and this enables them to predict how changes will affect equilibrium within these systems.
 
Science Understanding
Global systems, including the carbon cycle, rely on interactions involving the biosphere, lithosphere, hydrosphere and atmosphere.

  • explaining the causes and effects of the greenhouse effect
  • investigating the effect of climate change on sea levels and biodiversity
  • investigating currently occurring changes to permafrost and sea ice and the impacts of these changes  
This is broken down into the following 4 subtopics

Topic 1.1
  • Investigating how Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples are reducing Australia’s greenhouse gas emissions through the reinstatement of traditional fire management regimes
  • modelling a cycle, such as the water, carbon, nitrogen or phosphorus cycle within the biosphere
Topic 1.2
  • Explaining the causes and effects of the greenhouse effect
  • investigating how human activity affects global systems
 
Topic 1.3
  • Investigating the effect of climate change on sea levels and biodiversity
  • Considering the long-term effects of loss of biodiversity
Topic 1.4
  • Investigating currently occurring changes to permafrost and sea ice and the impacts of these changes
  • Examining the factors that drive the deep ocean currents, their role in regulating global climate, and their effects on marine life
