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.
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. Students will use maps and temperature data sheets to determine the locations where malaria is known to occur and the temperature ranges in these locations. Further, they will discuss and explore the potential impact of climate change and the resulting change in temperature on the geographical distribution of malaria.
|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, Reimagining 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.
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.
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.|
