Students gain an understanding of the effects of climate change on the environment and human life. Our resource explores how the evolution of human society is affected by the climate. Start by going back in time and exploring the ice ages from Earth's past. Learn about the lives of early humans, and how climate has affected where they move and live. Observe a homemade melting ice sheet to understand its effect on sea level. Then, create a model to show rising sea level in action. Find out if climate change has any effect on the rise of extreme weather experienced in recent years. Learn about the dangers to human health, such as mosquitoes, heat stroke and pollution. See how changes in climate affect an area's economy by virtually destroying the farming industry. Finally, choose one ecosystem and find out how climate change is affecting it.
