Teaching Tips

There is no teaching guidance to this information, so educators will have to come up with questions or an assignment for students to follow with the website.

It might be helpful to assign as homework when learning about climate systems, models, or other parts of climate change.

Students could progress through the six sections as a class, small group, or individually.

Would also be useful for teacher professional development.
