Human activities are having a negative effect on climate. The scientific evidence is robust, and the consensus among scientists is strong. So why is there still debate in the media and among students?

These hands-on, inquiry-based activities aim to address some of the basic science behind, and the clearest evidence for, climate change. Students will explore how carbon dioxide interacts with infrared light, how water expands when heated, how climate modelling works, and more. This resource encourages students to ask questions, work collaboratively, and make connections as they examine this critical and urgent problem.

This resource provides classroom activities that teachers can use to enhance the Earth and Space Science strand in Grade 10 Science.
