Lesson 10: Myths

Introduction

You have learned a lot about climate during CP Carbon Connections. Maybe you have talked with your parents or friends about some of what you have learned. One of the challenges of climate science is that the climate system can be complicated and this has led to many myths or misconceptions about how and why climate changes. Today you will review what you have learned so you can address some of these common misconceptions. You will work in a group to illustrate the scientific evidence that refutes the misconception. Your job is to create a poster that explains the science without using any words! Your other challenge is to make sure everyone in your group can explain the information contained in the poster you create, as well as explain the science behind the other groups' posters. Get ready to think and draw! Your teacher will give you your first assignment.
