Climate change: around the world, here at home
Link to Course Overview
Students are strongly encouraged to take both the green and blue colour block 56CLI classes as part of the climate change learning program. See program information here:
In this green block class, we will begin by investigating the relationships between the greenhouse effect, greenhouse gases, and local and global sources and sinks/storage of these greenhouse gases in what is known as the carbon cycle. We will also be looking at the effect of our changing climate in a local context on field trips, and understanding the effects our changing climate has had on plants, animals, and ecosystems and how they themselves are dealing with it. We will also hear from local climate scientists.
