climate change

by anya



I am a student of 5th grade and on Thursday, my teacher told me to draw a picture of climate change. I don't know how to do it.can you help me pleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeease???????

Barry's Response - If you can think of a good joke about it, draw a funny cartoon. If you have some good data, draw a graph or a map. If you're concerned about our earth, draw it (or a globe). The example above might give you a starting point.

You could choose a glacier, a flood, an iceberg, a desert. All of these things are associated with climate change.

When I do a Google search for relevant graphics and pictures, the majority of these that turn up consists of maps and graphs. With it being primarily a scientific subject, this approach seems appropriate.

This first one - - shows the impact of a sea level rise on the coastal communities of the USA, by default, and you could choose to make one for the country or coastline of your choice.

Take a look at the multitude of graphs along the right-hand column of the Wikipedia page on global warming. - Here we we see past and/or projected data displayed in graphical fashion to illustrate situations and trends for the quick understanding of their readers. A good idea for presenting any quantitative information.

If you're more into art than math, you could choose to make a drawing from a photograph that represents the situation quite well. Pick something that represents it to you.

Another thing you could do for comic effect is a comic drawing of somebody famous, associated with global warming. Al Gore is a most obvious example.

This assignment could be a lot of fun, if you let it.
