In this lesson, students independently research the question: “How is climate change causing confusion in how living things respond to the environment?” Exploring this climate confusion, students will discuss and define ways living things respond to environments. Then students will select a plant, animal, or even human population to research and present how climate change is impacting the plant, animal or human response to their rapidly changing environment.
Step 1 - Inquire: Students watch the video of “Amazing Animal Migrations” from National Geographic.
Step 2 - Investigate: Students read two articles about how climate change is impacting species. Next, students research a migratory animal, or plant, or human population of choice to show how climate change has impacted their interactions with the environment.
Step 3 - Inspire: Students present research and describe solutions.
