General Assessment

Recommendation of how and where to use it

Book 6 Adesh's Deep Sea Dive is part of an excellent series of books to teach younger students about climate change. This particular book covers important aspects such as causes of climate change, how climate change affects the oceans and marine creatures, habitat loss, rising sea levels and storms in an age-appropriate manner. Older students could use this to reactivate knowledge about greenhouse gases and how they cause climate change. Younger students could use this story as inspiration for a drawing of themselves doing one of the activities that Methuli suggests can help fight climate change. Teachers could have students draw a cause and effect diagram to show the actions that are affecting the ocean.

The book contains helpful pronunciation guides for Sri Lankan names, a world map, and a glossary.
