I'm a teacher of Italian as a foreign language in primary school (students are 12-15 years old) in Serbia. I teach Citizenship in English and we work on different topics such as children's rights, empathy, pollution, use of plastic and recycling, climate change, gender equality. As MIE Expert, SM Teacher and TeachSDGs Ambassador, I am constantly striving to improve my own teaching approach, so bring in the STEM activities, critical thinking and statistics in my every day teaching practise.

What is causing Climate Change?

7th grade students have been conducting their own little research about causes of Climate Change. They made a video where they talked in English and Serbian about their findings and also they drew illustrations about this problem.

Here are their conclusions:

Global warming is a slow and steady rise in Earth's surface temperature. According to the IPC*, human-caused global warming is driving climate changes impacting both human and natural system on all continents and across the oceans. Human-caused global warming results from the increased use of fossil fuels in transportation, manufacturing and communications.

*The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) is the United Nations body for assessing the science related to climate change.

One of the girls wrote a fanny poem about climate change in the autumn in Serbian language. Then she made an effort to translate the poem so that it could be understood in English.

Climate changes in autumn

Autumn came, in a small walk through the city went.

In the nature changes are large, and at the Chinese there are expensive prize.

The sun is shining, until my neighbour sneezing.

The wind's really blowing, and I'm waiting for tea boiling.

The rain came to visit us, and in my house a cat is chasing a mouse.

An army of dark clouds approaches, as the sun slowly descends.

The leaves are getting yellow, the hard lessons are getting to me!
