Climate change and oceans

Investigate the physical and chemical properties of ice, water and carbon dioxide to explore sea level rise and ocean acidification.

STELR's climate change and oceans resources use the context of sea level changes and ocean acidification to investigate properties of water and carbon dioxide chemistry.

The activities included in the STELR climate change and oceans curriculum materials allow students to:

  • investigate the effect of climate change on island nations
  • understand the physical properties of water and ice understand the chemistry of carbon dioxide
  • experiment with acids and bases
  • investigate the effect of ocean acidification on sea life
  • investigate related careers

The STELR Climate Change and Oceans program is designed to be a 6-8 week course; however, it can be modified to suit the needs of your students.
