Where Have the Fish Gone? (Key Stage Two and Key Stage Three)
Botanic Gardens Conservation International (BGCI) have created teaching activities based on climate change. Students discover how an invasive species (water hyacinth) have caused eutrophication and destroyed fish stocks.
Students are given a series of cards containing information. Working in small groups, they are asked to sort out and use the information to make a story. From this, students are asked to come up with an explanation as to why there are no fish in the Akosombo Dam, Ghana. Sorting cards allows students to handle materials and for some students this is a useful way of introducing longer writing.
HEALTH and SAFETY
Any use of a resource that includes a practical activity must include a risk assessment. Please note that collections may contain ARCHIVE resources, which were developed at a much earlier date. Since that time there have been significant changes in the rules and guidance affecting laboratory practical work. Further information is provided in our Health and Safety guidance.
