Iceworld Activities

In the Iceworld Mission, Chrono-bot 5H00T5 travels to a future where the gulf stream has shifted due to climate change, leaving Scotland frozen. The smallest improvement in the rate of climate change today could help, so the more energy we can individually save the better! We have a whole host of activities to help you and your students do this.

All of our activities are free but you can help to support the work of Roots & Shoots in the UK by making a donation, no matter how small. The easiest way to donate to the Jane Goodall's Roots & Shoots programme UK online is by using Virgin Money Giving. This can be a one off donation for any amount you want (every pound helps!) or if you prefer you can set up a regular, monthly donation.
