Climate Fact Cards

During the month of January, students in Waynflete’s 4-5 program created fact cards in connection with their class unit on Iceland’s glaciers, sea level rise, and Iceland’s proactive efforts to slow the pace of climate change. (Iceland is this year’s Global Focus country.)

The fact cards are similar to public service announcements, with messages ranging from “CO2 is the gas that’s causing Earth to warm up over time” to “The world’s largest glacier is in Antarctica” to “Glaciers melting may trigger more volcanic eruptions in Iceland.”

These signs are posted around the Lower School. Have a look the next time you visit!
