Curriculum Target Grades: 7 & 10
Suitable for Grades: 7-12
Evidence of human-induced climate change can be found in every corner of our globe, from the coldest reaches of Antarctica to the deepest trenches in the Pacific Ocean. Get students focused locally by going on a facilitated tour through our museum galleries to discover how altering our climate is resulting in effects we can see happening right here in our province of Manitoba. Compare natural vs human-induced factors, and look at causes and effects of climate change on the peoples, land, and biodiversity of our province. Students will also examine actions they can take in their own lives to contribute to solutions through engaging discussions and interactive elements.
