An article by Amy J. Hawkins and Louisa A. Stark titled ‘Bringing Climate Change into the Life Science Classroom: Essentials, Impacts on Life, and Addressing Misconceptions’ in the American Society for Cell Biology journal Life Sciences Education. This reading discusses how climate change can be taught in the Life Sciences classroom. It provides an overview of educational resources that teachers in the Biological Sciences and Life Sciences could use to teach topics in their discipline that are linked to climate change.
Students will understand the link between climate change and the Life Sciences. They will also learn about impacts of climate change on the biosphere and its role in the Earth’s climate system.
Use this tool to help your students find answers to:
- How can climate change be taught in the Life Sciences?
- What are the impacts of climate change on the biosphere?
