What is Plants, Animals and Our World?

The course introduces learners to the concept that our world is made up of interconnected systems, governed by natural principles, and the impact that their choices have on these systems. It gives students many opportunities to practise making sustainable choices, reinforcing the concept that they have agency to create sustainable change.

An online interactive provides pupils with an engaging lesson which they can use in class or at home. Built-in assessments and real-time grading help keep track of your students’ progress.

The Sustainability Foundations course can (optionally) be delivered as an introduction to this course.

Course structure

Plants, Animals and our World is made up of four lessons, each with an online learning module and slides with supporting classroom activities.

Sustainable global resources

Students learn that Earth is a source of limited resources, and we need to manage our use of them carefully, working within the limits of each system.

Protecting healthy biodiversity

Students discover that organisms in an ecosystem are interdependent. Biodiversity protects the delicate balance of life on Earth, and we must understand the conditions that support it.

Positively impacting climate change

Students explore how living things are adapted to the climate zones they live in. Data shows us human activity is leading to global warming and climate change, and we must act.

Innovating for a healthy life

Living things adapt to changes in their environment over long periods. Our innovation can help us adapt to an environment changing faster than we can evolve.
