The Biggest Eruption of 2018 Was Not Where You Think NASA

Concepts of Geographic Thinking: Spatial Significance, Patterns and Trends

Inquiry: Why might the release of Sulphur Dioxide  into the atmosphere from a volcanic eruption be of concern?

Activity: Collect data on the impacts of sulphur dioxide in the atmosphere. Determine the connection between sulphur dioxide release and spatial significance by creating a spatial journal of volcano type and amount of sulphur dioxide release and observe for any patterns and trends. From a geographic perspective, how might these events, the release of sulphur dioxide into the environment, be of concern to stakeholders? Conduct an issue analysis to gain perspective and develop an action plan to deal with these types of events and communicate the results as a story map.

Inquiry: How might `going green`impact  the US economy and economies of the world? Why are Canadians not wanting to "Go Green"? How might this view be changed?

Activity: Gather information on the environmental and economic impacts of "going green". Conduct an issue analysis to determine the values and beliefs of different stakeholders in going green discussion. Create a spatial journal that reflects the research of the different places that are going green.

Climate change will change the colour of Earth’s oceans by the end of the 21st century

Climate Action: Rachel Cooper

Concepts of Geographic Thinking: Interrelationship, Spatial Significance, Geographic Perspective

Inquiry: How might the colour change of the oceans impact human populations? How might communities prepare for this future?

Activity: Gather data on ocean temperatures impacts and locations. Conduct an issue analysis to identify stakeholders and to understand their position. Create a spatial journal of stakeholders and local water temperatures. Develop a possible reaction to this situation and communicate it via story map.
