Operation Arctic Adaptation
Overview
We all know that global warming is well under way. But while humans might not be doing much to get ready, the animals have got a plan! They know that if they’re to survive, they need to adapt, so they’re conducting a training program for all interested arctic (and Antarctic) animals. Based on these animals’ real habitats and diets, students will create stories about how they learn to survive in not-so-icy conditions! The online section of this workshop will run for 8 group sessions, followed by a one-on-one for each student as they prepare their stories to be published.
