In this lesson, students will grow their problem-solving skills and knowledge of climate and ocean science by conducting their own mini-research projects! They will learn how to adapt their projects based on the tools provided to them, and the information they have available. The lesson is designed to be taught over a week, with one half-hour activity each day.
This lesson is based on the paper Changes in climate change: A review of the International Panel on Climate Change reports from 1990 to 2014 by Ellie S Jones of the Oregon Institute of Marine Biology. A lesson based on this paper will not only teach students about climate change, but about how scientists perform research projects over long periods of time, and how they deal with uncertainty and changing technologies.
