smileI find keeping the kids interested is an issue! Finding interesting videos and having to update my material with current events!

I often find it difficult to engage students in this unit.

It is also difficult to find good resources.

Students are taught climate change in grade 9 geography and they are difficult to engage.

Lack of experience and knowledge in the subject area...unit becomes very theoretical and ultimately BORING!

How do you differentiate between the grade 9 geography from the grade 10 science curriculum? Students at times feel that they are learning the same thing over again.

The students find it dull and repetative.
