Explore a range of options and generate new ideas for practical and powerful actions.
In this activity, students will learn a thinking strategy that they can use to explore options and find new solutions. Students will practice using the thinking strategy by developing practical and powerful actions in their own community to address climate change. Designed to nurture aspects of the curricular competency of applying and innovating, this activity can be easily applied to other examples and problem solving situations.
Invite students to carry out the new actions that they have developed. What was the result of their actions?
Throughout the activity consider how well students:
Guide students in using the “Assessing my ability to explore options and find new solutions” rubric during the activity.
Using criteria to decide which scientific claims are the most believable.
