KS2 climate change – RE medium-term plan

What's included?

6 x PDF lesson worksheets; 1 x PowerPoint presentation; 1 x medium-term plan

Key Stage



Years 3-6

In this KS2 climate change unit you’ll explore:

  • the concept of stewardship in Islam
  • how climate change is affecting the holy Hajj pilgrimage
  • how Muslim communities have worked to better the world we live in through ecological measures – including one very impressive eco-friendly mosque.  

Teaching about the climate crisis (otherwise known as climate change) is something most of us are keen to do, but often it isn’t easy to find a way to make time for it in the already packed schedule.

Luckily, many subjects lend themselves to seamlessly incorporating modern-day climate discussions – including RE!  

Use the free worksheets and PowerPoint presentation alongside the medium-term plan to help teach your pupils about the ties between the Islamic religion and climate crisis concerns.
