This lesson is designed for fifth grade students. It focuses on the “big idea” that humans depend on, are shaped by, and affect the earth’s climate. Students will first take an in-depth look into the earth’s climate, the roles humans play in climate changes, and the impacts the changing climate will have on humans. Then, they will propose solutions to minimize the consequences of climate change on our earth and its people.
What lessons can we learn about genetically engineered organisms from the example of the jabberjay, a fictional bird in the movie “The Hunger Games”? In this lesson, students discuss the definition of genetically modified organisms, learn about the risks and benefits of research on G.M.O.’s, explore the growing do-it-yourself biology movement, and develop proposals seeking to either restrict or permit research into genetically modifying the avian flu virus.
In this module, students are asked to explore artist representations inspired by how the “self” works in society. By exploring the elements of introspection through various art and media, students are asked to create a multimedia expression of who they are. Using their personality, likes, dislikes, values, and anything else that helps them identify, they create their own introspective representation.

The transferability and evaluation guide is a supporting document for the target group and stakeholders on how to use and take maximum advantage of the developed and proven courses and the learning materials produced by the project.
It is a set of interactive documents integrating descriptive multimedia material (an enhanced eBook).
The guide supports the correct implementation and evaluation of the training material and tools created. It offers it proposals and guides to transfer the created Blended Learning courses in an efficiently and stringently defined way as well.
This Intellectual Output provides detailed information, description and practical advice on how the created project results can be transferred from the specific countries (or specific pilot test group) to other Educational fields as well to other European countries.
The transfer guide provides all tools and information for effective further use of the project results also for other enterprises and organisations in the field of C-VET. Additional, the transfer guide contains all material and the necessary documentation for a transfer of the training to other educational fields, for example in Adult Education, School Education, and partly to Higher Education.
