How can communities adapt in the age of climate change? What tools do they need to make this possible?
Students work in groups to create a fictional town, but one which is based off of a real region in the United States. They learn about climate change, and are able to explore and think about how communities adapt and build resilience, as well as environmental justice through the fictional town that they are collectively developing.
For the concluding Key Idea, students move away from the fictional town and apply what they learned to their real-life community. They learn about climate activists and strategize ways that they can use art to bring attention to climate threats that will effect their real-life community.
