Introducing Climate Cops to your 7 – 11 year olds
Bright ideas in energy efficiency
The NEW Climate Cops teaching resource has been developed with practising teachers to provide a comprehensive set of tools to deliver a series of stimulating lessons and exciting assemblies. The aim of the programme is to engage children in energy efficiency to encourage them to make a genuine improvement to the environment. Visit www.climatecops.com where your children can play our interactive energy saving games and download Climate Cop materials and activities.
Students are invited to join the Climate Cops – Skye, Will, Oscar and their polar bear K’eyush – to explore how we use electricity every day. Working through a range of full colour resources, they'll learn about the energy journey covering:

The Climate Cops resource includes:
1 x Teacher booklet (containing flexible classroom ideas for discussion and practical activities for each topic.)
4 x Classroom posters and flash cards (supporting different stages of the energy journey and designed to act as visual and interactive teaching aids.)
10 x Information cards (developed as both a reference tool and/or can be distributed to pupils to assist learning.)

1 x Parent leaflet (to reinforce the key energy efficiency messages that have been covered in school at home.)
1 x CD ROM (containing all the above plus assembly plans, animated diagrams, whiteboard activities and much more)
