Changing environments & Coral Bleaching #GoogleExpeditions Lesson
This #GoogleExpeditions lesson develops students' understanding of environmental change.

In this lesson students understand the impact of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere on the marine environment and in particular the coral ecosystem.

High CO2 has two impacts on the ocean: warming and ocean acidification. This virtual field trip shows the impact of warming oceans in terms of coral bleaching.

Google Expeditions are immersive 360 degree photo stories designed for use in the classroom. For more see:
