EiE: Wildfires and Drought, Gr 6-8
Pear Deck has partnered with EiE®, The Boston Museum of Science’s award-winning curricula division, to engage students in learning and discussion about climate change. With these ready-to-teach lessons powered by Pear Deck, students can explore how our actions affect the environment, and how they can leverage this knowledge to make a positive difference in the world.
Students examine data on the area burned by wildfire to draw conclusions about the changes in Earth’s climate since 2000. A video introduction discusses how increased temperatures have caused more extensive wildfires. Students then explore their local environments to suggest methods for mitigation of greenhouse gas emissions and adaptation to wildfires.
