How Can We Stop Our Climate from Changing So Quickly?
• Photocopy and cut out the pictures and statements
• Give a set of pictures to each group
• Brownies to describe each picture and discuss how this can help slow down climate change
• Give each group a set of statements
• Brownies to read the statements and to match them with the correct picture
• Ask Brownies to rank the pictures, putting the best solution at the top and the least effective solution at the bottom

Note: There is no correct order to the pictures. This activity is to allow Brownies participate in democratic discussion.
