Grade Level: Highschool

The "Carbon and the climate Quiz" is a simple yet thought-provoking activity suitable for school level students. The quiz has a set of questions about the role of carbon in the earth's atmosphere, the carbon
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 visualization to observe and analyze the change in temperature as measured in each country over the past 100+ years. Each stripe represents the temperature in that country averaged over a year.  For virtually every
The Office for Climate Education (OCE) presents a Teachers Guidebook that aims to support teachers in carrying out various activities on climate change and the ocean and cryosphere in their classrooms, and targets students of
CAIT Climate Data Explorer by World Resources Institute (WRI) showcases the world’s top greenhouse gas-emitting countries with the latest global data available till the year 2013. This interactive chart can be used to explore it by
A quiz to understand atmospheric aerosols, their basic characteristics and impact on climate. Use this tool to help students find answers to: What are aerosols and what are the sources of atmospheric aerosols? Explain how
A classroom activity that teaches students about the different atmospheric aerosols and gases released during volcanic eruptions and how they can affect climate. Students will analyse the data of emissions of water vapour, carbon dioxide
A classroom/laboratory activity that demonstrates the thermal properties of carbon dioxide (CO2), a greenhouse gas, that may contribute to global warming. Students will investigate the thermal properties of carbon dioxide by comparing the effect of
A video lecture that gives an overview of how vegetation responds to climate change in terms of phenotypic plasticity, range shifts, phenology, and population changes. Students will learn about plant responses to increased CO2 levels,
This teaching module allows students to explore the role of stomata in regulating leaf temperature and water loss from plants under different environmental and climatic conditions. Students will observe the nature and distribution of stomata
A simple simulator that allows users to change a range of variables such as the color of light, brightness of light, and carbon dioxide concentration, and then note their impact on the photosynthetic efficiency of
A reading that discusses the effects of elevated CO2 levels on the photosynthetic efficiency of field-grown plants. Students will learn about the difference in the physiological and biochemical responses of C3 and C4 plants to
