Learning and Discussing about Climate Change
Students’ age range: 18+
Main subject: Sciences
Topic: Climate Change
Description: The first step of the lesson will consist in preparing the classroom for the Fish Bowl activity with the help of the students. Chairs will be arranged in two circles: the small inner circle and the big outer circle. At this point, it is necessary to make sure to include one or two empty chairs in the inner circle. All the class is requested to sit before the teacher describes the topic of the discussion and provide information about the dynamic of the activity. Six to seven students will be invited and asked to participate voluntarily to start the Fish Bowl conversation while the rest of the class will be requested to become active observers and listeners. Only the inner circle can speak and share the ideas during the discussion. After about 8-10 minutes, students will start to leave and join the inner circle and so on until the whole group has participated. Students are allowed to take notes in a notebook as well in their phones. The teacher will be the moderator and will take notes in a notebook or the class’ blackboard although this last one is suggested since students can take notes or take a picture of the ideas written by the teacher on it at the end of the class. Links or documents with information about climate change will be provided to the students, so they can complement or learn more about the topic discussed in class.
