What is the purpose of an infographic?
It is a visual image such as a chart or diagram used to
represent information or data. It uses a combination of
visuals (charts, pictures, graphs, etc) and words to
make information engaging and easy to understand.
See some examples at: http://infographicality.com/
Task: Design an infographic that
addresses the following questions:
1. How are global warming and natural
disasters connected?
2. How is this going to affect humans
and the planet in the future?
Use your notes from class and added research to
create the best infographic you can. Be specific – use
real-life examples and logical thinking is a must
(science and geography beats out the movies!). You
may choose to focus on one or two natural disasters
or look at many. Planning and pre-thinking of layout
versus amount of information will be crucial!
Creation: You have two options
1. You can draw and build your infographic on
paper.
2. You can use Piktochart.com.
Piktochart.com
1. Note: this site works best in Google Chrome
2. You will need to create an account so that your work can be saved and accessed online from school or
home.
3. Choose a template (there are MANY to choose from) but choose one that fits with the theme of the
assignment.
4. Once complete you will save the infographic as a “jpeg” (aka an image) file and submit it electronically
through StudentConnect on the school laptops.
Due date: _________________________________________________
You will be given _______ weeks (aka _________ 40min periods) to complete this assignment – it is
EXPECTED that you are putting in some time outside of class as well. The classroom is available most
recesses as a work space.
