Description

Students use three graphs related to climate change (local temperature, carbon dioxide and global temperature, and sea level) to perform a variety of skills: recall, read, predict, describe relationships and causality, convince, criticize validity, describe scientific method, and defend data. Two of the graphs are "scientific literature."

There are three pages of questions for students and two pages of answers (with suggested scoring) for teachers.

Suitable for distance learning/assessment
