Science 10-2: Climate Change - How will it affect us?
Objective: To introduce students to the greenhouse effect, climate change and challenges in the NWT.
Introduction: Melting ice and rising temperatures over the past decades suggest that climate change is happening at a noticeable rate in the North. Effects of climate change in the North are more concerning than in other parts of the country due to implications of significant ice melt and permafrost changes. This lesson aims to introduce students to climate change and the greenhouse effect and then to the specific implications for the north.
