The ability to make connections is an imperative step in achieving deep learning. This series of lessons, focused on climate change concept maps, is designed to help students do just that. The creation of concept maps or mind maps can be a useful skill in and of itself, allowing students to organize information in a way that facilitates their own understanding. These climate change concept maps will allow students to transfer skills across disciplines and gain a deeper understanding of the material in the process.
These lessons can be used in a range of disciplines, including economics, world languages, history, social studies, math, ELA, and civics. The following lessons provide interdisciplinary opportunities to teach about climate change in grades K–12, including AP, and these resources are sure to get students asking questions and making connections between your subject and climate change.
