This story map is intended to be used with students who have access to a computing device in a 1:1 or 1:2 setting. Using various visualizations (i.e., images, charts, and graphs), students will explore changes in sea ice extent as it relates to other spheres within the Earth System.
This lesson connects day/night and seasonal cycles with albedo in the Arctic region. Students will explore seasonal changes of albedo.
Students will make a claim about whether changing albedo contributes to changes in Arctic habitats.
