Last fall I shared a list of a half dozen resources that help students see the effects of climate change. This afternoon I Stumbled Upon another good resource to go along with that list. The BBC News offers this short overview of the history of the Earth’s climate changes. The two and a half minute animation does a nice job of combining graphs and images along with narration to explain three major eras of the Earth’s climate.
Applications for Education
The BBC’s animated journey through the Earth’s climate history could be a good resource to use as part of a larger introduction to broad themes in a study of climate change.
