31Supplemental Activities a. Potluck Dinner Host a potluck dinner gathering and invite friends, family and neighborhood partners to join the projectandtalkaboutlocalclimatechangeissues, including adaptation and emergency preparedness. Unveil your maps and ideas for performing the demarcated line in your community. With the help of interested participants, determine the ideal path to walk and mark. Next, determine the best date, and send out a press release to invite conversation and participation. (ie. The HighWaterLine was in several television spots found in the resources section. Make sure to send a press release to writers, TV stations, blogs, etc.) B. Story Bank Share and collect the many stories of your HighWaterLine project by creating a StoryBank of experiences from participants and local communities involved in the project. To create your Storybank, you’ll need an audio recorder and physical place to meet. Advertise a day to collect stories, invite friends and participants and lure them with treats and free coffee/tea. Ask them to reflect and share their stories. Limit each to 4-5 minutes and create an archive of the recordings online using free tools like C. Mapping Bureau Create a physical and digital portfolio of maps created in Stage 2 to showcase to friends and family, and add them to your HighWaterLine blog. Ask them to physically mark where their homes/ workplaces are on the map. Determine if they‘ll be underwater according to climate change expectations and the flood maps gathered in Stage 2. Include your town/city’s emergency prepared- ness maps and plans as well. Once you have these all gathered and posted online, develop a way to bring these maps out onto the street when you begin to scout out the best location for your performance and walk. To do this, create a “Mapping Bureau Suitcase” that gathers maps and information in one place. On one side of the suitcase, you can install your papier-mâché topographic map created in Stage 2 so that people on the street can easily visualize the sea level rise or other impacts of climate change. On the other side of the suitcase, create an easy to pull out display that has your maps, climate change visuals and site- specific information ready to showcase and explore with others. Activities outlined in this guide represent opportunities for educators to meet K-12 common core Standards in Science, Math, Language Arts, and Social Studies among others. The guide can also be adapted for University level students and life long learners. Subject Language Arts Mathematics Science Social Studies Grades K-5 CCSS.ELA-Literacy.
