Climate Training Activities: Penguin Balance
Climate change is happening throughout the world. Some effects of climate change include rising sea levels, melting glaciers, more severe storms, more unpredictable weather, warming oceans and air temperatures, and an increasingly acidic ocean. All species (including humans) are affected by the climate. As the climate starts to change, the change can have a positive or negative impact on each species. This activity looks at some specific climate change events and how they affect penguins. The activity is designed for adults, families or kids ages 6 and older with their families. Younger children may enjoy adding and removing the tokens.
