Build the Change: Biodiversity and Climate Change Course Pack
This incredible FREE resource from the LEGO Group features lesson plans for ten 45-minute classroom sessions, including presentations, videos, online polls and quizzes, printables, and so much more! Students ages 7-12 will gain hands-on knowledge about how climate affects a range of species as they create their own solutions to environmental challenges and debate and discuss their ideas.
What is the Biodiversity and Climate Change Course?
In this 10-session course, students ages 7-12 will learn about animals, their habitats, and how they are threatened by the effects of climate change. They will create imaginative solutions to these real-world challenges and share their ideas with others.
At the heart of the sessions are hands-on creative activities called "Time to Create." For creating the children's solutions and ideas, LEGO® Bricks can be used but are not required—you can use pen and paper, glue, string, clay, or any other creative materials you have available. Please note: LEGO Bricks are not included in this Course Pack.

More Climate Change Resources
Climate change is a global issue that affects different countries and climates in different ways. First Book's Climate Change in the United States is an educator resource that provides information about how changing weather patterns and increasing temperatures affect specific communities and industries throughout the country as well as activities for students and links to additional climate change lessons and resources.

Traditionally, climate change has mostly been taught in Earth science classes in middle school and high school, and the top reason educators give for not teaching about climate change is that it is not related to subjects they teach. To support educators in meeting national and state standards and incorporating climate change education into a variety of subjects and settings, First Book created the Expanding Climate Change Education resource.
