Summary:
Climate change is pushing the world's coral reefs to the edge of extinction. The growing damage is an early warning of the danger climate change poses to the world's oceans and other ecosystems. These rich, sensitive ecosystems are vital to the survival of one-quarter of all sea life and the economies of many countries. Created in collaboration with the Australian Curriculum Corporation, this DVD classroom resource is the ideal tool for teaching about the science of climate change, its impact on our oceans, and how coral reef ecosystems work. With its video modules and guide, Climate Change and Coral Reefs is designed to optimize student learning and engagement. It encourages student discussion, research and presentations to learn more about the issues involved and discover possible solutions to this serious environmental challenge. The video modules and guide are aligned with national science standards -- scientific understanding, science as inquiry and science as a human endeavor.
