Do you ever wonder about the impact of human activity? In this class, students will look at the impact of human activity on the Earth's climate, the atmosphere and the ecosystem. Students will examine how the atmospheric composition of the Earth has been transformed by the burning of fossil fuels and how this has led to changes in the climate of the Earth. Students will also investigate how mining and deforestation have impacted the Earth's ecosystems. This class is great for those in Years 7 - 9 or who are interested in climate change!
