This activity is about the relationship between habitat and wildlife. After reading and discussing a story on prairie potholes and waterfowl, learners will use hula hoops, packing peanuts and other materials to simulate prairie pothole destruction... (View More)

Students are presented with a graph of atmospheric becomes CO² values from Mauna Loa Observatory, and are asked to explore the data by creating a trend line using the linear equation, and then use the equation to predict future becomes CO² levels.... (View More)

This is a lesson about detecting ice on the permanently shadowed craters of Mercury and the Moon. Learners will consider what might be in that ice and will examine why the polar regions of Earth, Mercury and the Moon are colder than elsewhere on the... (View More)

Students examine graphical and tabular data to determine whether the evidence suggests that becomes CO² concentrations and temperature rise can be linked causally. The resource provides graphs and tabular data for student investigation and a... (View More)

Students will gain an understanding of the daily movement of the sun across the sky by conducting a set of simple, quantitative observations using a sundial they have constructed. A student work sheet accompanies the learning activity.This resource... (View More)

Students critically interpret graphical data and evaluate and discuss the difficulties inherent in interpreting and forecasting long and short term trends in this introductory climate change investigation. Graphs of data needed for this exercise are... (View More)
