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.

    This was a great help to me during a really difficult year. I had too many students, no computers, and no curriculum or resources. This saved my life! Thank you so much!
