NASA Resources for Teaching Global Climate Change in Middle School

Course Section Description:

Teach global climate change using a problem-solving approach and STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) methodology to engage middle-school students and help them understand the causes and effects of climate change. Learn about the differences between climate and weather and how actions and nature affect the environment. Enhance content knowledge of climate change and learn how to effectively implement STEM instructional strategies using resources from NASA. This course was developed with funding from NASA under the Global Climate Change Education initiative (grant number NNX09AL84G) and support from the NASA Global Climate Change Education Project.

Note: This is a facilitated course. Learners submit coursework and participate in asynchronous discussions throughout the course term, and receive graded feedback.

Classroom Link-Access to students recommended. PBS Classroom Link courses ask learners to implement lessons with their class or with a small group of students (options for learners without access to students are available).
