Lesson plan overview
TitleEstimating the cost of preventing climate breakdown
Assumed knowledgeStudents should be familiar with computing percentages, using percentages to express quantities relative to other quantities, and searching the internet for economic data.
ActivitiesStudents will collect data presented in the video and perform calculations to put the figures in additional contexts. Ultimately, students will decide whether or not they believe that preventing climate breakdown is as affordable as Harari claims.
