Our Living Climate

This education kit supports Years 5-10 excursions to the Our Living Climate show at Melbourne Planetarium.

Students who are interested in climate change over time and climates on other planets of the Solar System will find much to interest them.

The education kit consists of teacher resources and information about the planetarium show, together with activities focussed on climate change for students to do at school or at home.

Victorian Curriculum links include Science, Mathematics, Thinking skills, Interpersonal Development and Personal Learning.
