Here is a selection of links that may be helpful to teachers and climate change curriculum developers:
There are many sites that will show up on Google. This list is a few of them that I thought were particularly informative for educators.
Caution: The current president and his administration deny that climate change is due to human activity, and that it is a serious problem. The material on .gov sites may be modified, by this administration, to reflect these views. Please notify me if you notice any changes to government sites (NASA or NOAA) that promote climate change denial viewpoints.
Link to ideas about a framework for teaching this subject.
- Education links (many posted by educators on email@example.com. Join NSTA)
- EPA Climate site especially for kids. Middle School and above. (CAUTION: this site is currently being edited at the direction of the Trump administration to reflect the new administration’s views, which tend toward climate science denial. Please contact me if you find a new place to access these resources. updated 5/6/2017).
