Ticks, Lyme disease, and climate change (unfinished)
This is a Lyme disease and climate change activity that was modified from a High school ecology activity I made. In the high school activity, students are given graphs about ticks and climate change evidence and then students analyze those graphs and make predictions about tick prevalence and Lyme disease incidence. Here, students will actually analyze data about tick ranges, tick host range, and Lyme disease incidence themselves and draw their own conclusions about how climate change may or may not be affecting Lyme disease incidence and tick ranges.
