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!
