Art classes could make memes that show how some element of the transportation, energy, or communications infrastructure will be impacted by climate change.
In English language arts classes, students could write a personal narrative about a time when their lives were impacted by transportation, energy, or communications systems failing due to extreme weather.
Other resources on this topic include this video about why climate change causes more extreme weather, this Hot Mess video about how rising temperatures cause more severe hurricanes, and this video about engineering solutions for the future.
This video spotlights the impact of extreme weather-related events on communication systems, the energy sectors, and built infrastructure. It narrates the interconnectedness of these impacts on residents if urgent climate action is not taken. This is recommended for teaching.
