This two lesson geography series for students aged 16 18 touches upon core geographical themes including the role of carbon and water cycles in shaping our environment and how humans both drive and mitigate against environmental change. The lessons use documentary extracts to examine these processes from the point of view of a Kenyan farmer-turned-climate activist. Demonstrating the interlinked nature of physical and human processes, this resource could be used as a segue between the core themes of water and carbon cycles and global governance.
Lesson One - Why is Kisilu Obsessed with Planting Trees?
Uses Kisilu's story to focus on the links between the carbon and water cycles and the role of feedback mechanisms in Kitui county, Kenya. Students will require some prior knowledge of the how these cycles work before embarking on this lesson.

We love to hear how educators have used our resources.Contact us
We have developed a large catalogue of educational resources since launching in 2013, and some references and terminology will inevitably have dated as society and language evolves. We are aware of this and will be updating resources when our production schedule allows.
