Learning Activity 6

Three handouts

6-1: Research Project on Climate Change

Learners develop a research project on climate change. They can choose from three topics and they follow the guide that is on the handout. Review how to reference Internet Material before they start their project.

6-2: Your Ecological Footprint

Learners read about ecological footprints and then go on the Internet to calculate their footprint. They answer questions about their footprint and carbon offsetting.

6-3: Polar Bears and Climate Change

The Unites States has added polar bears to the endangered species list, but Canada has not (as of May 2008). Ask learners to do a report on polar bears. They can use the handout as a guide for writing their report. Have a discussion about how climate change is affecting some animals including polar bears.
