Now you Sea Ice, Now you Don't - Grades 7-12
Adapted from a lesson called: Climate Change from Pole to Pole, this lesson is intended for high school science students. The Western Antarctic Peninsula is a region experiencing rapid regional climate change. Students explore the topic using an interdisciplinary approach working cooperatively in groups investigating the biotic and abiotic components influencing the ecosystem dynamics. Students become specialists who gather evidence, graph data and have to formulate scientific explanations for their findings.
