Global Warming  Lessons and Links

By National Hall of Fame Educator Alan Haskvitz

http://www.reacheverychild.com

Whether or not you believe there is a global warming trend or not, the teachable moment it represents it a major plus for integrating lessons in math, science, language arts, social studies, and economics. Here are some quality sites that offer free resources. Hopefully, you took advantage of the free copy of An Inconvenient Truth that was featured on Reach Every Child earlier this year. I shared my copy with the entire school.

Air and Weather sites

To give background on why transportation is vital and its history.
