Leave with new ideas and NGSS-aligned resources to engage your students in the real-world impacts of climate change
Today’s students need to understand how their world is changing due to climate change, as well as the impacts that those changes could have on their local community. The resources and instructional experience that we will address in this webinar help shift the classroom conversation about climate change to focus on solutions that communities are developing right now to build resilience in the face of drought, one of many climate change impacts. We will take a tour of the resources; which include news videos of communities facing serious water shortages, climate data from NOAA and NASA, and everyday solutions. You will leave with ideas and strategies for incorporating materials into your classroom instruction and hear from a teacher about his experience with the resources. The collection, Climate Change Impacts and Solutions: Drought helps students learn about impacts of drought through news videos of communities facing serious water shortages, analyzing drought data and models, and doing research on and evaluating potential solutions.
