Brief Description Teach students about climate change and how it could affect the planet. Then the students will build a vehicle that can transport 2 polar bears from the melting arctic to a safe zoo.
Lesson Objectives: To teach students about climate change.
Materials Needed: Lego kits, polar bears (can be made from clay, cotton balls, etc- just make sure they will be scaled so they can fit in a Lego car)
Preparation and Set Up: Make polar bears. Make an overhead about climate change if you want to.
Procedure There is not an overhead about climate change- but it would be pretty easy to make one. Do the activity. The worksheet is just for fun.
Extensions: Depending on the students’ building skills- the cars can use motors or not. You can have certain specs such as the polar bears must be enclosed so they don’t get too hot during the journey.
