A set of resources to understand the link between periodic life-cycle events in plants and animals (such as flowering, leaf-out, and migration), and climate change. Students will work on a range of activities–learn about phenology,
This guided lecture and discussion helps students to understand the possible impact of climate change on animal migration (an important animal behaviour) and to explore the neuroscience of migration. The example of monarch butterfly migration
A classroom/laboratory activity or teaching module to perform cost-benefit analysis for carbon emissions abatement, considered to be an action that will mitigate climate change. Students will learn about cost-benefit analysis, and will determine the costs
This video gives an overview of global climate change, historical and annual carbon emissions, and biggest and smallest contributors to the emissions. This video is part of a series about climate change supported by Breakthrough
A classroom/laboratory activity to explore the possible role of climate-related environmental factors in the timing of leaf-out in plants (specifically, red maple leaf-out in New England).  In this activity, students will create graphs by using
A game that provides an immersive learning experience to visualize the possible effects of climate change on our cities and neighborhoods in the future, and to explore actions for climate change adaptation and mitigation. Students
Climate Science Education Series Developed by Science Media Center, Indian Institute of Science Education and Research, Pune, India Continuously Habitable Zone Video lecture by Raghu Murtugudde Professor, University of Maryland, USA
A reading to learn about the effects of climate change on human rights, governmental responsibility in addressing these human rights issues, assessment of actions implemented, and recommendations on integrating human rights considerations with climate adaptation
A visualization that allows students to explore changes in the pH levels of oceans for different levels of atmospheric CO2. It includes visualizations of CO2 concentrations corresponding to various emission scenarios of the Intergovernmental Panel
Teaching modules to learn about climate justice in the context of the world and in the context of British Columbia (BC). Students will discuss the challenges encountered in climate justice; concepts such as food justice,

A visualization to observe, understand, explore, and analyze the molecular structure of carbon compounds (CO2, CH4), the effect of electromagnetic radiation on these molecules, and the role of greenhouse gases in climate change. Students will
An audio podcast to learn about climate change-related human migration and its outcomes, and to initiate a discussion on policy measures that can help in better management of population movement caused by climate change. Students
An article from National Geographic about how climate change may pose a risk of extinction to more than half of North American birds (also includes visuals of the data from National Audubon Society for some
