Teaching About Climate Change
Cool Schools Tackle Global WarmingBook - 2001
Making reductions in greenhouse gas emissions is a national focus in both the U.S. and Canada, and schools are well-placed to combine conservation strategies with an education program that makes links between lifestyle choices and the future of the planet.
This exciting resource provides educators at all grade levels with strategies to teach about global warming and engage students' interest in doing their part to help cool the planet. Compiled from the pages of North America's leading environmental education journal Green Teacher , Teaching About Climate Change is packed with lesson plans, activities, experiments, and worksheets. From calculating your school's CO2 emissions and other greenhouse effect experiments, to strategies for reducing school energy consumption, and hands-on explorations of energy and transportation alternatives from solar cookers to bikeathons, this compendium provides the tools to get any classroom or community involved in making their school cool.
