DROUGHT - The New Northwest Normal?
[3 STEM Clock Hours] [Grades 6-12] With a shrinking snowpack and big changes coming in the seasonal patterns of our water cycle due to climate change, how will we adapt to an increase in annual drought conditions?
Time & Location
Nov 13, 2021, 9:00 AM – 12:00 PM
About the Event
Is drought the new normal? Participants will engage with graphs, maps, infographics, and informational text to understand climate science, local implications of drought conditions, and strategies for supporting student agency, voice, and choice in developing solutions.
Teacher Learning Goals
1. Demonstrate an understanding of how students can meet NGSS, STEM, Social Studies, or Common Core Standards in the context of measurably improving community water conservation goals while planning for climate resilience in the face of rising temperatures, shrinking snowpack, and changing water cycle patterns.
2. Design, adopt or refine one or more lesson ideas using the content and instructional strategies provided.
3. Apply STEM literacy across disciplines and promote college/career pathways that expand students’ thinking about the growing green jobs sector.
