The Anthropocene: Human Impact on the Environment
This interactive activity enables learners to explore key human impacts on the environment and what effects they have had over time.
The activity encourages learners to describe how different human impacts affect the ecosystem; interpret and summarise data presented in graphs showing human impacts on the ecosystem; describe specific types of evidence that can be used to determine whether humans are changing their local environment; and predict how different impacts will change over the next 100 years based on the information and data provided.
The accompanying student worksheet guides students’ exploration. The teacher guidance contains several suggestions for implementing the online interactive, as well as discussion questions and additional background information.
