Climate Change Unit



Of all the environmental issues, global climate change may be the one that will have the greatest impact on our future. While weather refers to daily changes in temperature, precipitation, air pressure, and so forth, climate is an area’s average weather conditions over a long period. Three factors have more influence on Earth’s climate than all others combined – the sun, global wind patterns, and the oceans.

This two-week long unit challenges students to research the following essential questions:

  • “What factors determine Earth’s climate?”
  • “What are the effects of climate change?”
  • “How can we respond to climate change?”
