Look at students’ arctic sea ice graphs before the next activity. Note the axis titles chosen by the students and use this to gauge how well they understand the information in the graph. Use the 1.3 Grading the Graphing Arctic Sea Ice Worksheet for a model version of the graph. If students had trouble constructing the graph you may need to revisit this activity before moving on.
Have students practice inputting one data point into the graph as a group and let them ask clarifying questions before completing the entire graph.
