The Arctic temperatures are rising as a result of global warming, and more evident catastrophic events are likely to occur in the future. Sea ice is melting and weather is becoming more erratic and extreme. This resource is insightful and recommended for teaching.
ESS2: Earth's Systems
6.ESS2.5 Collect data to provide evidence for how the motions and complex interactions of air masses result in changes in weather conditions.
ESS3: Earth and Human Activity
7.ESS3.2 Analyze and interpret data on natural hazards to forecast future catastrophic events and inform the development of technologies to mitigate their effects.
PS1: Matter and Its Interactions
7.PS1.4 Develop a model that predicts and describes changes in particle motion, temperature, and state of a pure substance when thermal energy is added or removed.
