Drought & El Niño in Ethiopia

This lesson plan has been designed especially for the following curriculum areas: climate change, weather & climate, climate zones, global and citizenship education, sustainability and the environment. This lesson plan focuses on discussing and learning about the El Niño phenomenon, using examples from the UK and Ethiopia in 2015, as well as exploring drought as an environmental and humanitarian phenomenon in the Ethiopian context.

The issue is handled in the broader context linked to climate change, and involves photo analysis, classroom discussion and reflection, mind-mapping and poster creation exercises that can be adapted and incorporated into the regular curriculum.
