Standard 5


   MS-ESS3-5. Ask questions to clarify evidence of the factors that have caused the rise in global temperatures over the past century.


Class will watch this National Geographic video on the basics of global climate change.

Climate Change


Groups of students will be tasked with creating lists of interview questions for a climatologist. Their goal will be to understand climate change patterns. Their question lists should be substantial enough that if they actually received the answers, they would be able to create a theory about why global temperatures have risen in recent years.  

Essential Questions:

What factors do you think contribute to global climate change?

What information is necessary to understand patterns of global climate change?
