Education Curriculum on Climate Change in the Schools

Increased temperatures and altered precipitation throughout the Southwest will result in water becoming even scarcer in many locations and could impact crop productivity and food security.  We partnered with the Asombro Institute for Science Education to design engaging, fun, and scientifically rigorous education units aligned with Common Core State Standards and Next Generation Science Standards.  These units are freely available and intended for use by anyone, especially educators of 6-12 grade students. The units consist of several activities each. Each activity can also stand alone, and the units need not be completed in their entirety.  The curriculum is free to download.
