Next Generation Climate is a six lesson, interdisciplinary, middle school climate change curriculum that has students investigate the cause of the global temperature change, research the major repercussions of climate change, and find out how they can monitor and minimize those repercussions. Next Generation Climate allows students to dive deep into graphs and data and practice the skills of argumentation and engineering design. This curriculum uses the Next Generation Science Standards as a framework and is also aligned to Climate and Energy Literacy standards.
What evidence is there to show there is a rise in global temperature? What factors have caused the rise in global temperature over the last century? What are the repercussions of the rise in global temperature? What would you need to monitor the repercussions of the rise in global temperature?
In what ways can the repercussions of climate change be minimized? How can you design a method for monitoring and minimizing climate change?
