This inquiry-based, classroom activity explores the impact of climate change and variability on forests. It focuses on the impact of climate change on a sugar maple farm in New England. The scenario invites students to examine higher-level issues of climate variability and change by creating a practical, scientifically-sound model to address specific points of a localized socioeconomic situation.

This series of activities demonstrates effects of rising levels of greenhouse gases. Specifically, it shows how: an increase of heat-trapping gases atmosphere raises temperatures; higher temperatures affect the water cycle; and rising sea levels could affect coastal areas as a result of glacial and polar ice. Designed to teach through scientific inquiry, the activities seek to stimulate thought about ... Full description.

This curriculum packet contains three inquiry-based classroom activities that explore the potential impact of climate variability and change on Earth's most abundant resource: water. Although each activity is designed to tap specific skills and knowledge to yield scientific results, the broader intent is to stimulate thought about the long-term impacts of a warmer planet.

This picture book is designed to introduce children to the Earth's atmosphere and its importance to life on Earth. It also introduces how the addition of new gases (e.g., ozone) contributes to changing the quality of air we breathe. With an understanding of how our atmosphere works, we can begin to understand how our activities may be contributing to some of those changes in air quality. The back ... Full description.

This lithograph shows images from NASA?s Landsat 7 Enhanced Thematic Mapper Plus instrument of the Boulder, Virgin, and Gregg basins that comprise the southern portion of Lake Meade. About 96% of the water in Lake Mead is from melted snow that falls in Colorado, Utah, New Mexico, and Wyoming. During the period from May 2000 to April 2003 severe drought occurred in the western states, and Colorado ... Full description.

: In this activity, users download and graph modeled climate data to explore variability in climate change. Most people know that climate changes are predicted over the next hundred years, but they may not be aware that these changes are likely to vary from region to region. Using data from the University of New Hampshire?s Earth Science Information Partner, a digital library of Earth Science data, ... Full description.
