Reflection: Real World Applications Using Models to Make Predictions - Section 4: Connecting the Learning


The High-Adventure Science Climate Module is about the real world. 

Earth's systems are complex and interrelated. This is an important concept for students to begin to understand. Every choice has a consequence. 

I am wondering how I will keep the idea of complex, interrelated systems fresh in the minds of my students throughout the curriculum.

Connections to the real world and systems in the real world will play an important role in my selection of material for student learning.
