Created by Katherine Hegewisch.
The Climate Toolbox Workshop Activities series highlight several activities which can be done using the Climate Toolbox to look at future impacts on a location in the areas of temperature, agriculture, forests, fire danger and streamflow. The following set of 6 activities was created for the 25th annual ENVX symposium at Lewis and Clark College in Portland, OR. Katherine Hegewisch presented a 1.5 hour hands-on workshop entitled 'Using maps and graphs from the Climate Toolbox to create climate data stories'. In this workshop, students broke into groups of 2-3 and worked on one of six climate data activities created for the workshop. A representative from each group then gave a 5-min presentation on their climate data story. The activities walked students through data stories related to Portland's future fire danger, forests, grape growing suitability, streamflow for drinking water, wolverine habitat and temperature climate analogs.
Here you can download the 2-page activity and see an example slide presentation that might result from students following the activity.
