Today we’ll be covering human impacts on the environment and discussing the ecological case studies we read about last week. We’ll cover several topics including:
- Acid Rain
- Ozone layer depletion
- Mass Extinction
- Depletion of Natural Resources/Destruction of habitat
- Climate Change
- Invasive Species
After that, we’re going to play a game courtesy of the BBC. The game is called “Climate Challenge” and basically you get to run a country that is facing the threat of global climate change head on. You’ll have to balance protecting the earth, your citizens, and your job! Use the link below to reach the game (*note, if you are using a iOS device you will need to view this using the puffin app). Good luck, have fun, and learn something!
