You need to create an email address and a new TikiToki account so we do not erase the timeline you created for Ms. Buchter.
This is a 50 pt. assessment grade.
1. You will develop a TikiToki time line with at least 10 events per person. Please put the persons Initials on the event that they contributed. that have contributed to climate change, plastics in the ocean, or the effect of Fossil Fuels on the planet that does not include global warming
- How has CO2 levels changed since the industrial revolution?
- How have glaciers changed and the polar ice caps changed over the last 50 years?
- What are the effects of oil spills?
- How has the temperature of the planet changed?
- How much plastic is in the oceans and where are they going? ex. gyres, atolls, etc.
2. You will also have to project out to the year 2100 and give a scenario where we take action to address climate change and reduce our use of fossil fuels and another scenario where we do nothing and clearly show the difference between the two.
- What does sea level look like?
- What do the worlds forests look like?
- How many plastic lunch forks have been used/saved because of efforts like Orion and Nick using metal forks at lunch?
- How much plastic is in the ocean by 2050?
- These are just a few examples, feel free to be creative.
3. You can use the data that we have been compiling as a class over the last two class periods to help you with this project.
Here are some cool info-graphics created by NASA.
Here are some more sources from Ricken and the Avaaz team on plastics in our sea:
With hope and gratitude for this amazing community,
