Here is a list of activities (quizzes, games, etc.) that a child can do on his or her own (although very little ones may need help from elders).

Resources are free to access & download. These can be used for classroom teaching as well as at home by parents.

See the complete list of climate change resources for children at “What Resources Can Be Used to Explain Climate Change to Children?” (OneSharedEarth, 2019).
