Impact of Climate Change on Chinook Salmon

This Impact of Climate Change on Chinook Salmon lesson plan also includes:

If your kids already know something about the water cycle, life cycle of salmon, and climate change, then they're ready to participate in an activity that explores Chinook salmon of the Pacific Northwest. They read an article and a case study, then discuss the potential or actual impact of climate change on the Chinook salmon. They examine POD cycles and create graphs that show changes in salmon populations due to increases in sea temperatures. The final assessment activity requires them to make short presentations using both their graphs and their evidence, which they obtained from their readings.
