Are you into being COOL?


Earth’s temperature is rising, so staying cool is going to become very difficult if something isn’t done about global warming.

 You’ve probably heard plenty about global warming in the news. 

This webquest will help you understand some of what is being said.  Maybe you will even get a bit ‘HOT under the collar’ about the issue of global warming and what it means for this planet.


One of the COOLEST ways to get people to listen to what you have to say about an issue is to put it on video, so here is your chance!


Behind the News is interested in hearing what young people have to say about their local community.  After investigating the larger issue of global warming, see what effects are being felt in your local area.
