Language:English
Organization:National Park Service (NPS)
Summary:"In """"""""Climate Science in Focus (Earth as a System)-"""""""" students will learn about the four Earth systems and how they are connected. Broken into eight days, these lessons require 58 minutes to complete. Students explore topics including climate and weather, carrying capacity and animal adaptations, watershed and human influences on them, climate science data exploring streamflow, and information to schedule a field trip to work with a hydrology program or have a virtual tour of a National Park Service site. Students will create a final project explaining climate change in the Eastern Sierra."
