The resource first supports an understanding how climate change translates to a variety of human impacts specific to the ocean with an overall concept map.
Then, resources are provided in a lesson-planning framework that allows the teacher to best incorporate the concept of carbonate chemistry with the human impact of ocean acidification, all while teaching the content in phenomena-based, investigative methods.
Links to high-quality, relevant, student-friendly data sources and readings are provided within this framework [IP.CarbonateChemistryOA]. Also provided is a written lesson plan for guidance, along with an aligned powerpoint and carbonate chemistry matching activity. Directions for activity are included.
