Thanksgiving Field Trip 2010 - Learn About Climate Change At The Field Museum
Posted Nov 05 2010 9:55am
Looking for a fun November 2010 Thanksgiving weekend activity for your family? I have the perfect solution - bring them to the MUST-SEE green experience at the Field Museum - Climate Change .
The exhibition explains the science
behind the issues and explores the implications of climate change going
unchecked for future generations. ClimateChange makes it clear there is no
single solution to the problem.Instead,
it allows visitors to see how individual, collective, communal, and
governmental actions can make a meaningful impact in reducing global climate
My 10 year old LOVED this exhibition and learned a lot about how climate change truly touches our personal health, our economic well-being, and so much more. This is a great educational experience for the whole family, but particularly older children and adults who are looking to spend a fun time learning a little bit more about how the world works. We really enjoyed it.
Climate Change has been open most of the summer with a last exhibition day of November 28th - so be sure to come to the exhibit before it closes. Makes it the perfect Thanksgiving weekend family activity!
My favorite part of the exhibit can be seen in the above photo - a globe which shows air and ocean currents so viewers can see up close how earth is touched by climate change. It was a pretty wonderful piece of technology for the exhibit.
Most importantly, the exhibit does a lot to bring more awareness to the public. People of all ages can learn about the science of climate change and how it can touch each and every life on earth. Go see it in November at the Chicago Field Museum - it is a great exhibit!
