Extreme Weather Film and Lesson Plans

Educators looking for an engaging angle to teach about climate change and weather should check out these five lesson plans from National Geographic (previously featured in the 05-17-2019 Scout Report). Students will practice forecasting and measuring weather, identifying weather patterns, and making connections between weather and climate. For example, in the lesson Climate Change and Rising Seas (grades 5-9), students learn the difference between global warming and climate change and perform a hands-on experiment to predict sea level rise. Lesson plans include accompanying videos from National Geographic and ideas for assessing students' knowledge. All five lesson plans appear as clickable tiles in the Activities section of the page linked above. Readers can scroll to the Film Clips section to view selected clips from the film Extreme Weather, and keep scrolling to find links to articles, photo galleries, and more classroom resources, organized thematically around climate change, weather, sea level rise, and forest fires. The film Extreme Weather and the accompanying lesson plans were produced through the support of Lockheed Martin.
