Climate Change

Below I have linked the textbook pages for this section on Human Geography.

Textbook: counterpoints_unit4

Our first focus of study in geography will be on pages 438-448 – Climate Change

For those NOT writing the in-class essay on this topic (to replace your mark on the previous essay) you will have enough space on you r note sheet you received. For those who may want a better organizer and more space in order to gather information for an essay there is the Climate Change Chart For each one there is a poster to gather information on the impacts of climate change on different parts of Canada. In the left column labelled location you can write whatever names apply to the region, whether by political boundary (provinces) or physical region (i.e. “the North”). The middle column is the most important and requires you to categorize the impacts according to WATER (W), AIR (A), LIFE (L), and LAND (L). There may be some overlap of these so you have to decide which category the impact is most affecting.

It is very important that you keep in mind the BIG QUESTION (at the top) and take good notes, especially if you are writing the in-class essay! The notes (or the chart) itself will be for 20 assignment marks.

Here are the posters:
