Climate Change
Draw a human who has evolved to cope with climate change

a. Discuss how Jon Kessler uses objects and technology to draw attention to the ways in which global warming and climate change affect people and the planet.

b. Ask your students to draw a human who has evolved to cope with climate change. Have students consider how they could alter parts of the person’s body. What devices and tools will they need to survive? What will their surroundings look like? Encourage your students to fill the whole sheet of paper.

c. Students could bring in found objects and materials to create a three-dimensional work based on their drawings. You could give your students the choice of working on their own or collaborating in small groups or pairs.
