In partnership with the Purdue Climate Change Research Center (PCCRC), the Indiana Department of Education (IDOE) presents the Indiana Climate Change Education Framework (ICCEF). The ICCEF offers K-12 educators the ability to infuse their science curriculum with climate change education. By searching the ICCEF, educators will be able to efficiently curate instructional resources and research that align with Purdue’s Five Critical Topics for Teaching Climate Change and the Indiana Academic Standards for Science.

The Five Critical Topics for Teaching Climate Education include:

  • The relationship between weather and climate
  • The components of earth’s climate system
  • The greenhouse effect
  • The movement of carbon
  • The scientific perspective about climate change
