Consider the preponderance of evidence when making a verdict. The third of five lessons in Unit 1: The Big Climate Change Experiment focuses on the evidence for climate change. Learners study graphs, diagrams, and pictures regarding global surface temperature, atmospheric carbon dioxide concentrations, the likelihood of warmer summers, wildfire trends, extreme weather patterns, global sea level rise, and changes in glaciers to evaluate the scientific evidence that climate change is occurring.
- Collaborate with a math teacher for the lesson
- Pupils should be familiar with line graphs, bar graphs, and circle graphs
- Basic knowledge of climate is necessary from the previous lessons
- Provides student worksheets, including an observation guide and a reflection sheet
- Graphs are easy to read and interpret
