Title: Global Warming: Early Warning Signs

URL: http://www.climatehotmap.org/curriculum/index.html

Abstract: This set of teaching materials is designed to accompany Global Warming: Early Warning Signs - a science-based world map depicting the local and regional consequences of global climate change. The map was produced as a collaborative project by several environmental organizations, and has been peer-reviewed by scientists. The Union of Concerned Scientists produced this Curriculum Guide. Geared towards students and teachers in grades 9-12, individual exercises are adaptable to different grade levels. Each activity is structured to include an initial Engagement exercise, one or more steps of a Student Exploration project, and further ideas for extended study. The materials align with National Learning Standards for Science, Geography, Social Studies, Language Arts, Environmental Education, and Technology.
