Lesson Plan: Teach the Earth’s Climate System Through Simulations (Earth-Like)

As a Middle or High School Earth Sciences, Environmental Sciences, or Geography teacher, you can use this lesson plan to teach the Earth’s climate system and help your students understand different aspects of Earth’s climate using simulations. This lesson plan is based on the web-based tool ‘Earth-Like’ developed at the Earth-Life Science Institute, Japan.

Lesson Plan: Teach the Earth’s Climate System Through Simulations (Build Your Own Earth)

As an Undergraduate Earth Sciences, Environmental Sciences, or Geography teacher, you can use this lesson plan to teach the Earth’s climate system and help your students understand different aspects of Earth’s climate through the use of simulations. This lesson plan is based on the web-based tool ‘Build Your Own Earth’ developed by the University of Manchester.

Lesson Plan: Heat Transport in the Atmosphere, Hadley Circulation and Climate (Global Precipitation Patterns and Distribution of Deserts)

As a high school or undergraduate Geography, Earth Sciences, or Physics teacher, you can use this set of computer-based tools to help you in teaching about heat transport in the atmosphere, atmospheric circulation, and the Hadley Cell and Hadley Circulation.

Lesson Plan: Teaching Glaciology, Glaciers and Glacial Retreat, and the Cryosphere-Climate Relationship

As a high school or undergraduate Geography or Earth Sciences teacher, you can use this set of computer-based tools to help you in teaching about glaciers, the cryosphere, and related topics such as the impact of temperature and precipitation on glacial mass, glacial budgets, and glacial advance and retreat.

Lesson Plan: Atomic Number, Mass Number, Isotopes and Isotopic Ratios, and Isotopic Compositions as Climate Proxies

As a high school or undergraduate teacher of Chemistry or Earth Sciences, you can use this set of computer-based tools to help you in teaching atomic number, mass number, isotopes and isotopic ratios, the use of isotopic ratios to calculate temperature, and the use of isotopic composition to recreate past temperatures and climate.
