The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has developed a website with resources for educators to teach students about climate change. Resources include general information on what climate is, how scientists study it, and how and why it is changing. Based on findings from the National Climate Assessment, the site also includes information on the impacts of climate change at the regional level. With resources geared towards middle school, high school, and early undergraduate level students, the site encourages students to think about the ways climate change affects their region and ways they can respond.
The full set of resources for students and teachers can be found at http://www.climate.gov/teaching/2014-national-climate-assessment-resources-educators.
