A set of hands-on laboratory activities that uses the pH scale to understand the changes in ocean chemistry due to increased carbon dioxide emissions. This module shows that increased ocean acidification has adverse effects on
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 teaching module by Our Climate Our Future titled ‘Agriculture and Climate Change’ that discusses the impacts of climate change on agricultural crops and products. This resource can be used as an introduction to the
A classroom/laboratory activity to analyze CO2 emissions data by using Riemann sums for the calculation of area under the curve. Students will use calculate and compare CO2 emissions for the U.S. and China, based on
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,
An interactive visualization to explore the effects of melting ice sheets and the resulting sea level rise on coastal areas.  Students will configure parameters related to glacial melt in Antarctica and/or Greenland, and will observe
A classroom/laboratory activity to learn about the pH of ocean water, explore the potential effects of climate change on ocean acidification, and understand the possible impacts of ocean acidification on marine organisms such as oysters. Students will explore
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
A laboratory activity to learn about the urban heat island effect and heat waves. Students will collect temperature-related data from various parts of their schoolyard, observe and analyze differences in the data, and discuss the
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 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
This audio podcast discusses how glaciers in the Yukon are responding to climate change. It focuses on changes in the physical characteristics of these glaciers and several methods used by glaciologists to track changes due
