Climate Change: A Wisconsin Activity Guide is a resource for Wisconsin's teachers to help students develop the knowledge and skills needed to become informed and active participants in society's climate change discussions. It touches on both the scientific aspects of climate change and social issues.
The 12 activities in this guide are designed primarily for students in grades 7 to 12. The guide contains activities applicable to a variety of subjects including sciences, math, language arts, social studies, and art. Each activity is designed to stand alone as an individual lesson, however, the more activities students complete, the better they will understand the many aspects of climate change.
