According to Dr. Amstrup presentation, Hope for Polar Bears, the population of these beautiful animals can be maintained as long as carbon dioxide concentrations do not exceed 450 ppm.  
What the world needs to watch. Global warming is mainly the result of CO2 levels rising in the Earth's atmosphere. Both atmospheric CO2 and climate change are accelerating. Climate scientists say we have years, not decades, to stabilize CO2 and other greenhouse gases. To help the world succeed, ...

Yes, we need to keep those CO2 concentrations down! ;-)

Beautiful pictures! Climate literacy principle 3 is exhibited well in your post!
 
Here is my "Reflect" Activity 2C for this class.  I chose to do effects of climate change on Sonoran Desert Plants and have links to two articles embedded in my "Glog."

In addition to using resources from this class, Globe field campaign activities like great global investigation of climate, fit the challenge based learning model in that they have a big idea, essential questions, guiding questions and activities, and involve students in real world investigations.  I will also have students do a word sort activity using the climate literacy principles to help them understand their influence on climate and climate's  influence on them and society.

It's more like a climate literacy principle sort. Photocopy the principles and concepts, cut into strips, and place in envelopes.  Have students match principles with concepts.

Greetings from Detroit, Michigan.  My name is Wanda Bryant and I teach 7th grade science.  I was surprised to learn polar bear skin is actually black,they have 3 types of teeth  to catch, shear, and grind prey,and have a strong sense of smell.

That is great for a lesson on adaptations!  I do a beak lab with my students, but the video would be a great way to introduce the concept.

I like the idea of doing one thing to take action to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and love this video!

Lesson three provides the opportunity for students to utilize inquiry skills of asking questions, conducting investigations, using tools and equipment appropriate to scientific investigations, and identifying patterns in data.  Core geographic literacy can be enhanced as well.

I love the interdisciplinary connections that can be made in the study of climate change. Great job in tying the geographic literacy to the science. It is all interconnected, as you know.

My artifact is on the causes, effects, and ways to take action on climate change.
