Introduction: The learning activities at this site can be used as a unit or a case study. It is designed to help you investigate how climate changes may impact the geese populations and habitat of Western Alaska. The materials have been gathered to introduce students to a research project occurring in the YK Delta on climate change. The research is centered out of a camp on the Tutakoke river near Chevak, Alaska.
Learning Goal: Students will explain how climate change has raised questions about the future of geese in Western Alaska. They will learn more about the relationships of plants and animals in a coastal marsh.
Design: Informational text and media are posted online at this site. All media and text may be downloaded and used for educational use. The activities and learning objectives are published on student handouts that are linked here and throughout the site
