New England Aquarium: Climate Change and the Oceans

Science teachers may be interested in this collection of classroom resources provided by the New England Aquarium in Boston. The main feature of this collection is the Aquarium's Blue Impact video series, which was "[o]riginally developed as a tour for visitors to the New England Aquarium ...[and] presents the challenges ocean animals face from global climate change, and how communities are working together to make a difference for the blue planet." The series comprises seven short videos (ranging from about three to five minutes in length) explaining topics such as the science of sea level rise and how climate change affects species like shorebirds, sea turtles, and whales. Each video is accompanied by a downloadable student worksheet and a separate answer key for teachers. A glossary and overall teacher's guide are also provided. These resources are intended for "intermediate-advanced" students and are aligned with Common Core and Next Generation Science Standards. Following the Blue Impact series, visitors will also find a Digital Appendix with links to additional resources, lesson plans, and activities related to the topics discussed in the video series.
