Climate Time Machine 

This resource allows students to visualize the climate change over time. There are four topics to choose from: sea level, sea ice, global temperature and carbon dioxide. It’s a simple tool that can be used to introduce what climate change is and how it is affecting the indicators of the environment. This connects to resolving student misconceptions of scientific knowledge as a topic like climate change is not easily grasped by students as it cannot be visualized, but this tool can demonstrate in simple ways what global warming is. Students can then perhaps split into groups to study what has caused the changes in each indicator.
