Climate Change Graphics

The climate change graphics pages/student activities were developed to enhance observation and interpretation skills of scientific figures, graphs and maps in science, math or geography classrooms. Each graphic is drawn from published research on climate and climate change. Each graphic can be examined by individual students or in groups. Each graphic has focus questions to help students interpret what they see. Keys are provided.
