"You have probably seen or heard
the term climate change in many places,
from magazines to movies,
at school, and at home.
Everyone is talking about it.
But what exactly is climate change,
and how does it relate to our lives?"

--from Facing the Future curriculum


 

Contents
This trunk contains lessons for a two week unit to help students understand our changing climate. The curriculum, from Facing the Future, is supplemented with videos, CDs, and local materials. We have laminated the student pages and made class sets of the reading materials. Everything is ready for you to start sharing the lessons!

 

Lesson Plans
This curriculum is aligned with national standards for science and social studies but could easily incorporate other subject areas. The two week unit includes nine lessons, offering an introduction to climate change and the forces behind the change as well as exploration of other social, economic, and environmental factors. Browse all of the lessons in the Climate Change: Connections and Solutions curriculum.
