I am going into my 14th year as a classroom teacher, third year teaching exclusively World Geography to 6th graders. I love sharing the world with my students and getting them to open their minds to what is out there. And they love learning about the world around them, both locally and globally.

What is Climate Change, Week One

Our 6th graders started with defining climate and then comparing it to weather.  We brainstormed what the climate is like in our region then we broadened our understanding of what climate change refers to. Our kids seemed to understand that climate change was synonymous with global warming. We also discussed that throughout time, there is evidence to suggest climate change is something that happens periodically. We wondered whether our current climate change is a naturally occuring change or is due to human impact. 

We finalized our week with answering the questions: "What is the cause of climate change? What are the effects of climate change? and What is our own state like?" using emoji symbols on a joint poster.
