Collins Big Cat - Climate Change Heatwaves and Big Freezes: Band 11+/Lime Plus
Did you know that climate change isn’t just about scorching summers? It’s also about monster storms, freezing cold winters and changing weather patterns. All this extreme weather affects the balance of nature, and harms plants and animals. But should we do something to help? CAN we do something? Read and find out!
Lime Plus/Band 11+ books provide challenging plots and vocabulary as well as opportunities to practise inference, prediction and reading stamina.
Pages 46 and 47 allow children to re-visit the content of the book, supporting comprehension skills, vocabulary development and recall.
Ideas for reading in the back of the book provide practical support and stimulating activities.
Mio thinks climate change is the biggest problem every living thing, including us humans, is facing. Global warming is slow moving (it’s been sneaking up on us for decades!) but it’s also really hard to slow it down… She wrote this book because we need everyone, ESPECIALLY smart, enthusiastic kids to sound the alarm and act now before it’s too late!
