A modified version of a thorough analysis of climate change data. First, it includes a Venn-Diagram activity comparing and contrasting key vocabulary, such as weather and climate. Then, an in-depth analysis of several graphs on climate change data with questions relating to science basics is provided. Examples include identifying independent and dependent variables, and refuting or accepting hypotheses. The packet ends with the student taking the role of a science advisor to two climate change skeptics in congress and asks them to provide data to challenge their statements. Very relevant today! Created in the summer of 2017.
*This packet can be used as several warm up activities over the course of a unit as well.
