Use the Data Literacy Cubes to guide students’ exploration of data to enrich their observations and inferences. This is a flexible resource that may be used with a variety of graphical representations of data. This activity requires a graph for students to evaluate.
This activity is one of a series in the collection, The Potential Consequences of Climate Variability and Change activities.
Check out this the Arctic and Earth SIGNs video to explore how climate models are used in climate change research.
This activity invites students to model and observe the effect of melting ice sheets (from land) on sea level and the difference between the effect of melting sea-ice to that of melting land ice on sea level.
This activity invites students to simulate and observe the different effects on sea level from melting sea-ice.
