ClimateChangeLIVE is a series of webcasts and supporting online climate education resources from the U.S. Forest Service and 26 partners, including Climate Generation. These electronic field trips are a great way for students to learn about climate change from scientists, teachers, and other students.
North Cascades National Park Climate Challenge for Grades 6-8
This interactive online curriculum teaches students about climate change, its impacts on North Cascades National Park and gives the opportunity to explore solutions. Climate Generation developed the curriculum that is offered on this site.
National Climate Assessment Teaching Resources
This collection of resources will help bring the content of the National Climate Assessment to life. Resource collections have been identified for each region in the Assessment and and Next Generation Science Standards connections have been identified. Climate Generation identified resources for the Midwest and Great Plains Regions and identified connections between the Next Generation Science Standards and the NCA.
Advancing Climate Change Environmental Education: Resources and Suggestions
This multi-faceted e-publication includes the results of a needs assessment of climate change educators, a summary of research on teaching and learning, environmental psychology, and the science of climate change, analyses of the latest common core, science, and social studies standards showing where climate change fits and suggestions regarding lessons and units to enable students to achieve those standards; and suggestions for facilitating learner-focused inquiries with K-to-Gray participants in both informal and formal settings. Climate Generation was a leader in development of this document and led the needs assessment process.
NSTA Next Generation Science Standards Resources
This resource hub gives educators the opportunity to explore the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) and find resources that will help them implement NGSS in their classrooms. Climate Generation is involved with identification of resources that support the Middle School Human Impacts Performance Expectation.
NASA ESTEEM: Change Over Time: Investigate Climate Change Impacts in the Midwest
The National Climate Assessment, released in May of 2014, summarizes the impacts of climate change on the United States, touching on many disciplines: earth science, biology, human health, engineering, technology, economics, and policy. Explore the document with Dr. Fred Lipschultz from USGCRP (United States Global Change Research Project), then learn about related educator resources with Kristen Poppleton from the Will Steger Foundation. Discover how to bring these resources into classroom lessons, engage students in data collection and analysis, share visualizations and citizen science projects. Focus this month will be on the Midwest region. Watch for additional regions to be featured in upcoming “Ask US” sessions.
Climate Generation is an active and contributing member of the CLEAN community, a professionally diverse community committed to improving climate and energy literacy locally, regionally, nationally, and globally, to enable responsible decisions and actions. In addition, Climate Generation has contributed to the vast collection of CLEAN educational resources and participated in past review of resources as an climate change education expert.
PINEMAP: Climate Change and Southeastern Pine Forests
Climate Generation helped guide and review the development of this Project Learning Tree Module for Grades 9-12.
