Models are powerful tools for teaching science as they provide useful simplifications of structures and processes, helping to make the unseen seen and the complex simple.

Students will assemble a model using the colorful parts and then use it to look at how the climate has changed due to human activities. The model provides a great starting point to consider how climate change is affecting the planet as well as what can be done to help solve the environmental problems it has caused and will cause in the future. This unique model covers rising sea levels, sea ice melting, glacial retreat, wildfires, pollution, extreme weather events, habitat loss, deforestation, desertification, ocean acidification, disruption to ecosystems and threats to low level coastlines.

The Model Making Kit includes enough materials for students to assemble up to 5 paper models working cooperatively. The comprehensive Teacher Resource Guide included provides illustrated readings, activities, key vocabulary and an assessment, along with teaching opportunities for students to Engage, Explore, Explain, Extend and Evaluate their understanding of the concepts presented.
