Climate Project

The Climate Change toolkit is geared towards grades 3-6 and is based on curriculum written by Cornell University. The kit explores the impact of weather and climate on the world around them. Youth will recreate weather phenomenon while using scientific process, including storms, snowfall, and changing temperature through time. Activities can be used as stand alone activities or programs could use all six activities in the curriculum.

For more activities relate to climate, the Signs of the Seasons program has announced upcoming training dates. Participants in the Signs of the Seasons program help scientists document the local effects of global climate change by observing and recording the phenology (seasonal changes) of common plants and animals living in their own backyards and communities.

Also of interest may be the current research conducted by the Climate Change Institute at the University of Maine.

The Utah Discover 4-H Clubs series guides new 4-H volunteer leaders through the process of starting a 4-H club or provides a guideline for seasoned volunteer leaders to try a new project area. Each guide outlines everything needed to organize a club and hold the first six club meetings related to a specific project area. The Art of Math activities include sessions on Patterns and the Fibonacci Sequence, Symmetry, Shapes, Geometry, and end with a building challenge!
