Climate Change and Wildfire

4-day Unit
Target Audience: 9th-12th Grade Students
This unit was designed to introduce 9-12 grade students to the effects of climate change and rising global temperatures on wildfires. We partnered with the USDA Southwest Climate Hub to design an engaging, fun, and scientifically rigorous education unit aligned with Common Core State Standards and Next Generation Science Standards. This unit is freely available and intended for use by anyone, especially educators of 9-12 grade students. The unit consists of three activities and was designed to be conducted over four days. Each activity can also stand alone however, and the unit need not be completed in its entirety. The curriculum is free to download.
