Sea Level Rise and Climate Change

  • Grades 5th–12th
  • Length: 3.5 hours
  • Type: Lab & Field Activity

Through a series of short laboratory activities, students explore the issue of sea level rise, climate change, and barrier island dynamics. Traveling to the beach, students use common GPS technology to map island shorelines, upload their maps to Google Earth and track changes in shorelines seasonally and over longer periods of time.
