Welcome to the Science Methods Sea Level Rise Activity

In this activity you will learn about sea level rise by researching changes expected to take place in coastal areas on the Atlantic Coast. You'll also learn some of the science behind why sea level rise is happening.

During the activity, you will primarily be taking the role of a learner. But where you see the icon on the right, put on your "teacher hat" and think about the accompanying question from a teacher's perspective.
