Climate change should be taught to all students from primary school and be embedded in a range of subjects, a senior science curriculum expert says.
As the Abbott government launches a review of Australia's school curriculum, the dean of teaching and learning at Curtin University, Dr Vaille Dawson, told Fairfax Media climate change was not explicitly mentioned until year 10 under the national system and should be introduced earlier.
She said climate change was the most significant social issue the world was going to face and every student should have access to sound, evidence-based material on the underlying science. She said relating science to major social issues such as climate change also helped better engage students.
''Many teachers are already teaching climate change to younger students. But the rationale about getting it more explicitly in the curriculum is so that every teacher teaches it,'' she said.
Next schools will teach students to believe in the Easter Bunny, Santa Claus and the Tooth Fairy.
