VIRTUAL JOB SHADOW
Welcome to your first day on the job! Watch this video to see what a day in the life of an Climatologist is like.
Welcome to your first day on the job! Today you will be visiting your local elementary school as a guest speaker for Earth Day. As a climatologist, the teacher wants you to help her 3rd graders understand what climate change is and why it is important. Here’s what to do:
STEP 1: Find an example of a climate related issue occurring in your local area. Here is a good list (scroll down a bit to the regional chart).
STEP 2: Create a 15 minute activity to help the 3rd grade class understand the issue – make sure it is FUN and FACTUAL!
STEP 3: Share your idea! Find an elementary teacher in your area and ask them if you can come in and do your activity!
Optional: Share your climate change activity in our Student Showcase to help kids and build your resume!
