What impact does climate change have on our friend the walrus? In this standards aligned program, students create class models to learn about the greenhouse effect and investigate delicate interactions between species and habitats. Through handling specimens, exhibit observations, and kinesthetic modeling, your students will come to understand the consequences of human choices for arctic species and be prompted to take action.
