This is an dynamic animation video showing total emissions and the rate of emissions of New York City. The video makes carbon missions feel more real and engaging.
This activity enables students to determine how biodiversity may be influenced by climate change. They will learn about changes in the distribution and habitat of squirrels over time, and will discuss climate change as a potential cause of changes in biodiversity.
In this lesson plan, students learn about the impacts of climate change on human health. The lesson plan contains several modules and case studies on issues such as Temperature-related Death and Illness; Air Quality Impacts; Vector-Borne Diseases; Water-Related Illness; Food Safety; Mental Health and Well-Being.
This activity allows students to learn about phenology in plants and animals and to explore how climate change may influence phenological events. Students will use phenology data on flowering patterns to create graphs and will then interpret and discuss their findings.
This activity enables students to examine the relationship between temperature and the geographical distribution of malaria, and to determine how climate change may affect the spread and distribution of the disease.
This educational resource consists of eight modules that situates climate justice within the context of British Columbia’s ecology, history, economy and community. The modules are Introduction to Climate Justice, Re-imagining our Food System, Transportation Transformation, Rethinking Waste, Fracking Town Hall, Green Industrial Revolution, Imagining the Future We Want, Challenges to Change.
This classroom/laboratory activity allows students to understand how marine organisms may be affected by increased ocean acidification caused by climate change. Students explore and analyze the relationship between the growth of oyster larvae and the chemistry of ocean water by using data from the Whiskey Creek Hatchery in Oregon, USA.
The resources in this lesson plan introduce the link between phenology and climate change. Students can work on a range of activities–learn about phenology, investigate phenological events, and analyze phenological data (of monarchs, milkweed, and dandelions) by plotting graphs.
|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 to climate and weather.|
This short audio podcast discusses shifts in bird migration patterns due to climate change. It discusses bird species native to Wisconsin and changes in their migratory patterns.
|In this audio podcast from the Climate History Podcast, Professor Dagomar Degroot interviews Professor Bathsheba Demuth on how the environment and ways of living have changed in the North American Arctic and the history of communism and capitalism across the Bering Strait.|
In this exercise, students will learn how organisms respond to the change in climate since the last glacial maximum (LGM) by comparing modern and Pleistocene era beetles, mammals and plant taxon distribution.
This activity allows students to learn and understand the urban heat island effect by measuring temperatures in an area, collating data and analyzing the data. Students use available temperature data for a specific location (Los Angeles) to observe and analyze the occurrence of heat waves.
This comic book provides an introduction to the effects of climate change on our environment, and specifically, on coral reefs and integrated ecosystems. In this book, two schoolchildren in the Bahamas explain the possible effects of climate change and propose actions for adaptation and mitigation.
This interactive tool helps students to visualize the effect of sea level rise and various storm scenarios on the coast of California.
