This activity tackles the impact of animal agriculture on the climate and aims to engage learners in thinking creatively about climate change and how something as innocuous as a fart, when multiplied, can have far-reaching effects. The video, from the perspective of a cow’s fart who is about to set off on a mission to the ozone layer, contains four “in-play” activities, with prompts to pause, each related to a different aspect of the environment and the part cows play in this.
Attached is a presentation featuring each activity, which can be read out in turn. There are three further extension activities.
