I teach Science and English in my school. My students' age, ranges from 13 to 17 years old. In 2003 I graduated from University of South Australia with a Pharmacy degree. I am very passionate about teaching Science to my students especially regarding topics that are related to Biology and Chemistry. It is so great to see the wonder in  children's eyes when they relate my lessons to their real life experiences. This shows that they are able to apply their classroom knowledge in

How my students define climate change and their general perspectives regarding this issue.

Form 2 Dalton students.

My first group of students are from 2 Dalton. There are 5 of them: Akif, Bernice, Kay Venn and Shakira. 

They each have their own view of climate change and have tried to explain it briefly in the slides. They have even outlined some of the common causes and effects of climate change towards the environment and humans. 

Effects of climate change globally and planting trees

For week 2, group 2 students researched about the effects of climate change in Malaysia and around the world. They have also planted a tree and took a video of their project in the hopes that it will inspire more people to plant trees. However, during the presentation, they've discovered that trees are not the main living organism that converts carbon dioxide to oxygen. In fact, plankton is the main living organism that contributes a big percentage of oxygen in our atmosphere. These creatures are part of marine creatures. Hence, they have also mentioned that curbing the water pollution problem would be even more crucial to preserve these planktons in order to combat climate change.

Causes and effects of climate change globally and environmental issues associated with climate change.

This week's project was done by Group 3 from another class. The students from this group were tasked with researching on the major causes of climate change and how climate change has affected other parts of the world. Students found some common causes such as food waste, deforestation and industrialization. Other than this, students also found images and articles on the global impact of climate change, such as severe drought in some countries, floods in countries near the coasts and severe heat wave (for example in Europe years back). 

Students have also highlighted some environmental issues which are related to climate change e.g. deforestation and loss of biodiversity. Students were asked to relate the topic back to carbon-oxygen cycle and the types of animals (poikilothermic and homeothermic) and their methods of survival with increasing temperatures on Earth.
