Global Change Newsletter

As part of the Interdisciplinary Unit Global Change, grade nine students have been working on environmental issues and climate change in I&S and Science classes.

The students have produced a Global Change Newsletter, which will be displayed at the school library for the remaining weeks of the school year.

The students have researched and written articles on various topics, including natural disasters in the Mediterranean, droughts in Africa, climate change and melting glaciers in Greenland and climate change in Antarctica.

The newsletter also contains articles on further topics such as tropical storms in the Caribbean and the Great Barrier Reef in Australia. The students have learned a great deal about natural hazards and the impact of climate change in different parts of the world, and thought about how to mitigate the effects of natural disasters.

This unit also connects to topics discussed during the environment week earlier in the year. Environmental issues are an important part of the MYP curriculum.

Members of the H.I.S. community are encouraged to visit the school library to have a look at the newsletter.
