Global Impacts of Climate Change

Secondary

Description

In this resource, students will explore the impacts of climate change in Canada and around the world. Students will learn about the predicted impacts under different temperature increase scenarios and will produce posters to demonstrate what they have learned. 

General Assessment

Recommendation of how and where to use it

This resource would be excellent to spark a discussion on the impacts of climate change in Canada and around the world. An excellent activity to introduce students to the IPCC’s assessment report and Canada’s Changing Climate Report which summarize the impacts of temperature increase beyond 1.5°C above pre-industrial times.
