Pika Models + Climate Change Lesson Plan

Pika Models + Climate Change Lesson Plan

BAESI’s new “Pika Models + Climate Change” lesson plan is designed for high school biology, environmental science, and Earth science classes, but can be easily adapted for other grades and non-formal education settings, as well. It is aligned to NGSS & Common Core standards, as well as California’s Environmental Principles and Concepts. We hope you and your students enjoy the simulations and other activities and we’d love to hear your feedback about it!

Examining Mass Extinctions on Earth

In this activity, students read several articles on specific ages of the Earth and the mass extinction events which concluded them. The articles discuss the time period, types of life present, and the causes and consequences of the mass extinction event. Students then identify important information and answer questions.
