How does climate change affect the ocean and coastal ecosystems such as seagrasses, mangroves, and coastal wetlands? What is the connection between seagrass loss and carbon sequestration? How do scientists use satellite data to study climate change? This ADVANCED FREE course builds upon the main concepts in the Just Have a Think video #93 from Dave Borlace of Just Have a Think, and beyond.
This FREE 30-minute supplemental course is designed to support and enhance learning of the climate concepts provided by Dave Borlace of Just Have a Think. This Advanced course goes beyond our Blue Carbon Standard course to provide a deeper understanding of climate impacts to the oceans, blue carbon, the science behind carbon dioxide fluxes between the atmosphere and ocean, and conservation solutions. Try the Initial Learning Module first; continue to the timed Achieving Mastery module if you want to retain the material over time!
For Individual Learners: Build upon what you've just learned from the Just Have a Think Video with this entertaining course and retain what you've learned to pass on to others!
For Educators: This course is appropriate for middle to high school (secondary school) students. Designed to be taken after the class watches the Just Have a Think: Blue Carbon video; together, the video and questions comprise 45-50 minutes. The courses use elements from the U.S. Next Generation Science Standards of Disciplinary Core Ideas (DCIs), Crosscutting Concepts (CCCs), and Science and Engineering Practices (SEDs). Both courses align with current Next Generation Science Standards LS2 (Ecosystems: Interactions, Energy, and Dynamics); ESS2 (Earth's Systems); and ESS3 (Earth and Human Activity).
