Posted: November 06, 2009

A lesson plan about climate change in the Arctic was selected by MyHealthySchool.com website to join their collection of online educational resources. Developed through the DOE's Atmospheric Radiation Measurement (ARM) Education and Outreach Program for junior high school students, the lesson plan called "Bringing Climate Change into the Classroom" covers the greenhouse effect, sea ice, adaptation, and climate change in the Arctic. The MyHealthySchool.com website provides teachers, administrators and parents with tools for creating greener, healthier, more socially responsible schools and children. Their efforts are intended to help children learn how to make decisions that benefit their communities, the environment and their own lives.
