Global Climate Change and Sea Level Rise

California Academy of Sciences

Lesson Plan Overview: 

Students will learn via experimentation that ice formations on land will cause a rise in sea level when they melt, whereas ice formations on water will not cause a rise in sea level when they melt. Students will learn that ice is less dense than water and that ice displaces water equal to the mass of the ice.

Grades: 
3-5, 6-8
