Product Description
This activity addresses misconceptions in alarmist claims about climate change, while still focusing on the severity and seriousness of this global crisis. 15 multiple-choice questions are presented with an answer key that highlights the falsehood and provides a short explanation for the misconception. A Socrative code is also included to gamify the activity.

The purpose of this activity is to show students that while claims they hear about climate change are not always true, this should not diminish the severity of what actual science is saying about the issue.

--------------------Example Question--------------------
-Statement #1: Loss of sea ice makes hunting seals difficult for polar bears.
-Statement #2: Polar Bear populations are declining.
-Statement #3: There were no recorded polar bear drownings until 2009. Now polar bears regularly make long-stance swims, sometimes lasting days.

Statement #2 is considered false because the claim is supported by the fact that only 3 populations are in decline, while 1 population is increasing, 6 populations are stable, and 9 populations have insufficient data.
