Climate Science Alliance staff have been working with 8th Grade teacher, Amy Huff Shah from Museum School in San Diego to help incorporate Ocean Acidification activities into her classroom. Students enjoyed learning about climate change through demonstrations such as ocean warming in a jar, pH testing and a Bromothymol Blue experiment.
Led NGSS-style, Ms. Shah explored specific phenomena that have been occurring such as coral bleaching (Hawaii and Great Barrier Reef) and Northwest oyster dye-offs through hands-on science. Students put on their lab coats and science goggles and ran experiences about these ocean changes.
A huge thank you to Ms. Shah for spreading climate literacy to these students and bringing Climate Kids to the classroom!
