Having trouble getting your students to understand Climate Change? Looking for something to fit with the new NGSS framework? This activity will help! Students will produce a variety of graphs using real data sets from NOAA, The Hadley Centre, The World Bank, and others. Students are tasked with creating the graphs and then analyzing how the graphs relate to each other.
A great activity for traditional classrooms as well as classrooms that are 1:1 with either laptops or chromebooks. If your school is a Google school, all of the documents are easily uploaded to Google Drive for simple sharing.
Good for high school biology, earth science, or general science classes. May be appropriate for 7th or 8th grade classes as well. These files are all editable so you can modify to fit the needs of your students.
Digital package contains an instruction sheet with background information as well as a sample rubric for simplified grading. Also in the file are 4 Excel spreadsheets and a PowerPoint file containing images of all the graphs.
