This video highlights specific climate change-related phenomena that are threatening the flora and fauna of Yellowstone National Park.

This animation illustrates how heat energy from deep in Earth can be utilized to generate electricity at a large scale.

This introductory video addresses key points as well as pros and cons of oil as an energy source for transportation.

In this activity, students investigate the shifting of three penguin communities in response to climate change.

An interactive simulation of Earth's seasonal dynamics that includes the axial tilt and other aspects of Earth's annual cycle.

This is part of a larger lab from the University of Nebraska at Lincoln: http://astro.unl.edu/naap/motion1/motion1.html

This activity engages students in a role play to negotiate an agreement between the United States and China about climate change policies. Students use given background material or can do their own additional research to present their assigned stakeholder's position in a simulated negotiation.

In this activity, students will learn the difference between sea ice and glaciers in relation to sea level rise. They will create and explore topographic maps as a means of studying sea level rise and how it will affect Alaska's coastline.

This video explores what scientists know about how changes in global climate and increasing temperatures affect different extreme weather events.
