This lesson situates the Arctic globally and introduces students to people who call the Arctic home, including youth.
Alongside climate change, students learn about infographics as a way to understand and share information.
For the game “Is It an Infographic?” game, teachers should present the Teacher Slideshow in slideshow mode to conceal the answer at first glance.
When teaching this lesson, teachers should have a baseline understanding of how climate change works. This short interactive course offers easy-to-understand information on the basics of climate change.
Teachers will need to plan ahead for the gallery walk.
If teachers would like to spend more time on the infographic, both in teaching about infographics as a way to share information and on how to create an infographic, this website is an excellent resource.
Infographic creation could be digital, adding technology skills to the outcomes, if students have access to technology and the appropriate software.
This lesson demonstrates the impacts of climate change on the Arctic region and thus provides a background for students to reflect on the causal relationship between temperature changes and ice melting, glaciers, permafrost, and sea level rise. Accordingly, this lesson is interactive, properly cited, and has passed our science credibility.
