Integrate climate science in your teaching and use these educational resources to teach topics such as:

Glaciers, Glacial Retreat and Glacial Melting, Sea Level Rise, Coastal Floods, Droughts, Forest Fires, Climate Refugees and Environmental Migration, Agro-ecosystems, Food Production and Crop Yields, Climate Resilient Agriculture, Water Resources and Water Security, Climate Change and Cities, Urban Heat Islands and more.

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
Series of two E-Learning Courses on Introduction to Climate Change and Climate Science Following are two online courses in Climate Change and Climate Science by the National Resource Centre (NRC) on Climate Change at the
A video that introduces permafrost and its distribution on Earth. The video also describes the changing nature of permafrost across several regions due to higher surface temperatures and the possible impact of permafrost thawing on
A set of hands-on classroom and computer-based activities for students to learn about permafrost and to explore various web-based scientific data portals to investigate permafrost distribution, characteristics of permafrost, and the effects of thawing permafrost
A teaching module to learn about climate refugees, specific examples of climate change-related migration, challenges in resettling climate refugees, and actions to help people displaced by climate change. Students will read and discuss climate change
A classroom/laboratory activity that introduces the relationship between climate and the cryosphere, explains how sea-level rise can be predicted (based on average global temperature change), and triggers a discussion on the potential impacts of sea-level
A classroom/laboratory activity to learn about the rate of sea-level rise and the response of shorelines to sea-level change. Students will examine and analyze sea-level change data and shoreline response for the coast of California
An interactive visualization to observe and understand the possible effects of sea-level rise and different storm scenarios on the coast of California. Students will configure parameters such as the amount of sea-level rise and the
A classroom/laboratory activity to learn about suitable climatic conditions for a crop and to determine how climate change may affect food production (specifically, cocoa production). In this activity, students will learn about the relationship between
A classroom/laboratory activity to learn about glacial retreat and to predict the complete melting of a glacier (specifically, for an example in Glacier National Park). In this activity, students will analyze and interpret historical data
An interactive visualization to observe the effects of a global temperature increase of 4 °C on human health, agriculture, forests, oceans and marine ecosystems, permafrost, water availability, and extreme climate events. Students will observe and
