The Sea Ice Board Gameby: Kathryn Berry Bertram

Journal Article

The National Science Foundation-funded Arctic Climate Modeling Program (ACMP) provides “curriculum resource-based professional development” materials that combine current science information with practical classroom instruction embedded with “best practice” techniques for teaching science to diverse students. The Sea Ice Board Game, described here, is one of 183 ACMP hands-on lessons designed to help students around the nation understand weather and climate. In addition, the game illuminates 14 of the most common types of sea ice and introduces the four stages of the sea ice cycle (formation, growth, deformation, and disintegration).

The National Science Foundation funded Arctic Climate Modeling Program (ACMP) which provides resources that can be used in the classroom to enhance students understanding of the effects of global climate change. Although the article deals primarily about this game this article describes what other resources are available to teachers to use in their classroom. Games are always a good way for students to learn and knowing about other free available resources is a bonus for teachers as well.
