Essential Question: How do we study global climate?
After analyzing climate data in “Greenland’s ice loss is already massive”, students will work with a partner to complete a graphic organizer that illustrates the impact of Greenland ice loss.
Analyze a complex set of ideas or sequence of events and explain how specific individuals, ideas, or events interact and develop over the course of the text.
Draw evidence from literary or informational texts to support analysis, reflection, and research.
- Though the magnitudes of human impacts are greater than they have ever been, so too are human abilities to model, predict, and manage current and future impacts. (HS-ESS3-5)
- Through computer simulations and other studies, important discoveries are still being made about how the ocean, the atmosphere, and the biosphere interact and are modified in response to human activities. (HS-ESS3-6)
