Have students use the "Collections" tab to do a deeper dive into a specific theme, writing about observations and emotions experienced while viewing the images.
This image library could be used to supplement a language arts research project on climate change or to provide people-centered visuals to bring other climate topics to life for students.
This resource is a website that provides students with over 1,000 images that capture what climate change looks like. This resource would be a great addition to a classroom discussion on climate change. The photos help to provide visual cues and details that help students comprehend the effects of climate change and develop their own interpretations. The use of photos in explaining climate change effects can help students develop critical thinking skills by encouraging them to analyze and interpret visual information.
