    Project-Based Learning
    Project-based learning, or PBL, provides a framework for teachers to implement meaningful, relevant, and engaging learning experiences for students. Students in PBL engage in their own learning by participating in a series of inquiry-based activities to answer question, solve problems, and overcome challenges that they have identified. PBL provides authentic means for students to develop and deepen important 21st century skills, such as creativity, critical thinking, collaboration, communication, and problem-solving. Through PBL, teachers immerse students in authentic language and literacy learning opportunities, scientific practices, civic engagement, crosscutting academic and real-world concepts.

    ...
    (9-12Climate.B.3.b) In general for the USAPI, the average air temperature and sea surface temperature are both projected to continue to increase. The frequency and intensity of extreme weather events (e.g., typhoons and droughts) will probably change in currently unpredictable ways, except that extreme rainfall days will probably occur more often. Sea levels will continue to rise and the ocean acidity will continue to increase.
    (9-12ImpactsB.1a) When energy is added to matter, the molecules making up the matter move faster. If the matter can occupy a larger volume, heating it will cause the volume to expand. This thermal expansion of matter causes ocean volume to increase and sea level to rise when oceans are warmer. Global sea level is also rising due to the melting of land-based ice in mountain glaciers and polar ice sheets.
