Jam and Google Slides Game for Climate Change Captives 2035

Jam-and-Google-Slides-free-game-for-Climate-Change-Captives-2035
 

Climate Change Captives 2035 and Project SAVE has a new student Jam (Jamboard) and a Google Slides game for classrooms. Google files are accessible with Gmail and not other types of email. I often get questions about such files, so here is a link about how to Google Slides from this blog. Now I’m starting to make Jams, which is so much fun! What happens is the teacher or parent makes a copy of each file wanted instead of editing my original files.

So, these files may be used without having the book on hand for the most part, but there will be several frames and slides that will not make sense without it.  I’ve already made a free instant-download PDF book companion.

The word search uses the ten words selected by Lexile.com Find a Book tool. Then, I selected some words myself to finish the puzzle.

In the story, Kalli likes to bake cookies and is worried that when she gets to the City Center she won’t have an opportunity to do so. So this frame is to work around her neighborhood in order using decimals and fractions from lowest to highest. Students will add keys to point the way. A solution is provided, and teachers should make two copies of the entire file first, providing their students with a copy without answers. Teachers may wish to remove some of the slides, as well, depending on the teaching situation.

 
Mr-Washington-to-solve
 

Robert’s father has a long journey back to finding him and Grandfather. In the end, a teacher at the school helps him to surprise Robert at a small celebration. For this frame, students will find their way to the teacher. This involves being in the woods and knocking on a door that might not open.

Tristan is Kalli’s older brother and knows his way around Northern Ireland. The Dark Hedges is one place he has been to several times. He is a mathematician and so estimates measurements accurately. In this frame, students match numbers of meters to solve the questions.

 
The store in the book has two floors
 

The store outside the city center is rather run down. It used to be a beauty shop and now displays cans of soup in the hair washing sinks. Downstairs is a combination thrift shop and grocery store. Upstairs is where the electronic devices, nice games, art supplies, and so on are found. Students label the items as to their location, up or downstairs.

 
The Google Slides Game is Chimchardy
 

The game in Google Slides is Chimchardy (a combination of climate change and Jeopardy). It is played in Google Slides on Slide Show mode, however, as you probably know there is no automatic scoring in Google. The best idea I have is to keep the Jam Frame open for scoring by pulling numbers, and then have the game open in Google Slides, toggling back and forth. Or perhaps ask a student keep score on a tablet or different device with the Jam frame.

 
Laughter aboard the Slip Away
 

Ah, yes, some of the people who perpetrated climate change slip away into space before facing any court cases. In outer space, they dodge meteorites and have to fly carefully to try to get to an earth-like planet. They do not make their destination in book one, but perhaps when book two comes out.

 

I hope some people find the book and supporting materials useful. Thank  you for reading, Carolyn

World’s Most Famous Climate Change Artist and Others

World’s Most Famous Climate Change Artist? According to The Economist’s September 9-21-2019 climate change issue, the answer is Olafur Eliasson. He began his career at age 15 in Iceland. He is now over 50 years old. He has been producing art in this area for at least 35 years. Climate change is not new. Climate change art is not new. Really, we have known about global warming and have understood the solutions for decades. In the 1970’s it was brought to the forefront of the nation with the oil crisis at that time. I had hoped people would begin driving more compact cars, but the cars only became larger, and larger — SUV’s. Station wagons, a thing of the past, now seem small.

Olafur Eliasson created the Rainbow Panorama (pictured below). He began his career selling gouaches (a type of painting) of landscapes from his walks with his father, an Icelandic painter. He photographed shrinking glaciers and polluted rivers. He became famous for his sensory experience art shows such as the “Weather Project.” He had 14 massive chunks of ice moved from Greenland to the Thames for the Paris Accord to demonstrate global warming.

Rainbow Panorama image by Olafur Eliassan

Artists producing works in the area of climate change are growing.  “The Edible Hut” in Detroit, Michigan, was created by Mira Burack (Matterology). Renzo Martens works in the Congo and draws attention to the palm-oil industry’s impact on the environment. Vivien Sansout collaborates with farmers in Honduras and other areas.

“Cooking Sections” serves food for their performances in unlikely, polluted areas around the world. For the brave! Instead of carnivores or herbivores, they suggest people become “climavores” and eating locally sourced food.

There are art shows, sculptures, and a wide variety of artistic representations of climate change. There are professional and homemade signs at protests. The Politicians Discussing Climate Change sculpture in Berlin is one vivid example.

Recently we were inWorld’s Most Famous Climate Change Artist. David Attenborough’s image is on a building there.

The global warming art show by Neil Grabowsky is an example of a gallery display.

Emerging artists are also finding this topic important to document. The next image is “Passing Winds” and is the first such work of this person.

Even Pixabay.com has climate change pictures. There are many resources and articles online about climate change. Art is part of it all.

Review of The Economist Climate Issue 9-21-2019

A Warming World: The climate issue

The 9-21-2019 Economist magazine has many articles about climate change. They say their special issue is not all about the carbon-based climate crisis. The June 2019 Time magazine climate change issue had only one article. There is a free work page for students and answer key for teachers at this link for the Time magazine article. I wanted more information and consulted The Economist. Unlike the one-time article, however, except for short exerpts, the infomation is not free online. Libraries probably subscribe to the magazine, though

Near the beginning paragraph of the first article, it says:

“From one year to the next, you cannot feel the difference.”

For elementary students, I would say that from similar seasons they have experienced in their short lives, they might not feel much difference. Summer is summer, winter is winter, and so on to children. In summer, we swim and have picnics. In winter, we skate and go sliding. On some days, there might be an indoor recess due to rain or snow. The weather might seem different to them, while they are (like us) unaware of global warming. The cover of the September 21st 2019 edition of The Economist shows stripes on the cover, revealing temperatures have risen one degree Celsius.

What is the big deal about a one-degree rise in temperatures? This link is to an infographic “Earth Temperature Timeline,” that shows in cartoon form why a degree is a big deal. They mean Celsius when they talk about the rise in temperature, not Fahrenheit. For every 1-degree change in Celsius, there is a 1.8-degree change in Fahrenheit. The degree rise information would be a good topic for math class.

climate-change-will-hurt-people-not-the-planet-Economist-9-21-2019

Article one in The Economist’s climate issue is about how the changing climate touches everything. They say the issue “must be tackled urgently and clear-headedly.” They state the foundations of the world economy and geopolitics are carbon-based. It is not simple to solve the issues. They think this does not mean “shackling capitalism.” They say climate (alone) is never the entire story. This is why the topic of climate change is so controversial.

Other Background Information to Know

Before I continue the review of the articles, I want to share some information to help put this issue in context, in addition to the Earth Temperature Timeline (link above). The next image is from my free climate change PowerPoint for grades 3-6. Often people think climate change is inevitable due to our position third from the sun. The atmosphere of Venus is 96% carbon dioxide and has a temperature of 467 °C or 872 °F. Yet Mercury is closest to the sun and has an average temperature of 332 °C or 167 °F, and has a very thin atmosphere. Venus should be a lesson to us as we trap more and more carbon dioxide within our own atmosphere.

climate-change-not-due-to-earth-being-third-from-the-sun

Back to The Economist Climate Issue

We know what to do about climate change, but the difficulties in implementing solutions are complex. The article suggests using pricing on carbon could help innovations not yet imagined. Necessity is the mother of invention, after all. Although some countries have made improvements, it is difficult to know which countries are doing what when emissions in the world-wide atmosphere are considered. Twelve economies cause the most emissions. Capitalism and economic freedom must include global warming solutions.

The-Economist-9-21-2019-says-we-already-know-what-to-do-about-global-warming

The following section is Briefing Climate Change. The first part is “What goes up.” The article explains the gasses in the atmosphere and people who discovered them decades ago, such as Joseph Fourier (French), John Tyndall (Irish), and Svante Arrhenius (Swedish). None foresaw that our emissions would be nearly 20 times as much as in 1900. The article explains why it has increased so much. Before 1950, scientists thought carbon dioxide would be absorbed in the oceans, which Roger Revelle disproved.

“In 1965 the carbon-dioxide level was 320 parts per million (ppm). The carbon-dioxide level is now 408 ppm, and still rising by 2ppm a year.”

Their ice-age chart helps us understand the changes. The chart subject line says it is “like an ice age in reverse.” The scientific information is complex, in-depth, and provided in the magazine. 90% of the warming is in our oceans, but that is not solving the problem; it is warming the earth. A different source online explains that land icebergs reflect sunlight, but when land icebergs melt, the water is blue and doesn’t reflect, which means it absorbs heat from the sun.

every-decade-since-the-1970s-has-been-warmer-than-the-one-before-according-to-The-Economist-9-21-2019

The United Nations signed the 1972 UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). Since then, there are been more emissions. The IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) reports there has already been a warming of more than 3 °C in the Arctic. The Paris agreement said the rise should be under 2 °C, so that is important to know. Maps and charts help students understand the dense text in the article. There is no certain temperature change that means anything catastrophic will happen to earth, but just as water boils at 212 °F, we are seeing certain heating at this time. The longer we wait, the harder it will be to make the necessary adaptations.

The obstacle course (Green New Deals) article evaluates whether big plans to deal with climate change can make a difference. America stands out as being the largest contributor to global warming and is reluctant to address the problems. The article says Americans who believe in climate change outnumber those who do not five to one. It has become a presidential election campaign issue. The many efforts to help the climate in the USA are described. The stances of the Democratic candidates are also described. The rhetoric of some Republicans has begun to change a little. Virginia coal miners are being retrained as beekeepers, which will help the environment, but larger nationwide programs are needed. More about other countries, The Panama Canal, and Bolivia are included in The Americas section.

Planning for rising sea levels: In Deep Trouble is the Asia article in this issue. The dramatic picture shows a family in North Jakarta, waist-deep in water carrying some of their belongings and trying to get to safety. Thirteen of the twenty cities predicted to have the most significant increases in annual losses caused by flooding are in Asia. According to Andreas, a geologist, the sea is rising, and the cities are sinking in parts of northern coastal Jakarta. Forty percent of Jakarta is now below sea level. Extensive amounts of money have been spent in Singapore. Systems were built, and as explained in the article, problems persist.

Fires in the Amazon are not the only ones smoldering on Earth. Indonesia, Sumatra, and Borneo have had fires. They need rain. The difficulties of stopping the fires from economic to location near peat bogs, weather, and unpaid fines are described. Peat fires burn underground much longer than above ground.

The Asia section says China has upheld pledges about greenhouse-gas emissions, but more must be done. It says power firms there proposed 500 new coal-fired power stations that, if built, will damn the planet. The article is very thorough.

Oil markets and the Middle East and Africa situations are also covered. How climate change makes it harder to reduce poverty in one of the world’s poorest states, Malawi, is explained.

The Europe section begins with “a warmer Russia” which some in Siberia are not against. New shorter shipping routes are opening up, and Russia is spending money on developing the routes. However, calamities due to increased warmth are also happening. Unstable weather problems are happening. However, most Russians are not very concerned with the temperature rise. Germany is reducing reliance on coal with some controversy. Southern Europe is seeing climate change destroy ancient olive groves. Again, the explanation is provided. Lessons from the largest offshore wind market in Britain are featured. Britain’s success is helping other countries who benefit from their experiences.

The International section explains the plight of small islands. I wrote about this in the Time magazine climate change article which is free and online for students and teachers. However, The Economist has an excellent article on this problem. The Business section is about climate change capitalists. The Science and technology section is also about climate change. As the beginning article states, climate change touches everything the magazine reports on.

Thank you for reading, Carolyn

The video below is motivational and is not about climate change. However, an analogy may be made to climate change as it is about degrees of heat, although we do not need to turn up the heat on Earth. We don’t know the degree at which problems on earth will be insurmountable. One degree makes a big difference.
