Environment: Inupiat Weather Expertise

Students investigate methods of weather prediction prior to modern communication sources. A local elder lectures the class on weather prediction and safety. They document the experience by creating posters. Applying methods given by the guest speaker, they keep weather journals of the daily conditions and their predictions. Working in groups, they create local weather reports in the Inupiat language.
