Weather and Climate resources

 

The Teaching Times Report, a resource for teachers, has produced some free resources about the Weather and Climate which you may like to take a look at with your child. For reference, Minecraft is rated OK for children of 7+ years, depending on which version of the game they are playing, but as with any decision on media, the final say should be your own decision as a parent.

 

Weather Classroom Resource

It is important that pupils understand what weather is and appreciate that there is a difference between weather and climate. Weather can be described as what is happening now – whether it is hot or cold, raining or dry, sunny or clouded over. Click here to access the resource.

 

How To Explore Climate And Environment With Minecraft
