- The Christa McAuliffe Center's primary purpose is to support
teachers in their work. Some...programs are created onsite to
fulfill educational needs specific to Massachusetts educators.
Others are part of networks that impact hundreds of thousands
of students and teachers across the US, Canada, and the UK.
- Clean Air-Cool Planet creates partnerships in the Northeast
to implement solutions to climate change and build constituencies
for effective climate policies and actions.
- This “global warming art” site has some terrific
graphs, created by Robert A. Rohde, that visually convey the state
of knowledge on climate change. They speak volumes about what
we know and how we know it, so are worth close study by teacher
and student alike. Under Featured Galleries, you’ll
find graphs on past temperature, carbon dioxide through time,
sea level changes, glaciers, and predictions of future changes
which can be used in research papers and PowerPoint presentations.
Students could be asked to interpret the stories these graphs
tell; teachers could use them in lesson plans to show how climate
research is recorded and the evidence we have of the past.
- Great site - Page Paleontological Science Center. Paleoclimatology
