A few more late additions to my posts last month on climate science resources for kids:

  • NASA’s Climate Kids is a lively set of tools for younger kids, with games, videos (the ‘Climate Tales’ videos are wonderfully offbeat), and even information on future careers to help the planet.
  • Climate4Classrooms, put together by the British Council,¬†includes a set of learning modules for kids ages 11+. Looks like a very nice set of resources.
  • And my kids came back from a school book fair last week with the DK Eyewitness book¬†Climate Change, which is easily the best kids book I’ve seen yet (we have several other books in this series, and they’re all excellent). It’s a visual feast with photos and graphics, but it doesn’t skimp on the science, nor the policy implications, nor the available clean energy technologies – in fact it seems to cover everything! The parts that caught my eye (and are done very well) include a page on climate models, and a page entitled “What scares the scientists”, on climate tipping points.
