OverviewUsing props, ice, building dioramas, maps and art, students will see how sea level rise is caused by melting ice-sheets (not by melting ice-bergs).
Our "Climate Change" unit is broken into three lesson plans, each taking 60 to 90 minutes to complete, and targeted mainly at fifth and sixth grade students. A class needn't complete every lesson in the unit, though some lessons do refer to one another and are better done in sequence. However, each lesson comes with its own set of objectives and resources.
