  • Overview (PDF, 386KB) (includes learning outcomes and Standards alignment)
  • Students focus on global and local climate change solutions, using evidence gleaned from previous activities to support their predictions of the effectiveness of their proposed solutions. They come to understand that scientists and engineers are working to slow or stop climate change and to lessen the effects of climate change; people, businesses, communities, and governments can make choices that reduce their carbon footprints; and that possible solutions to climate change can involve chains of possible causes and effects.
