Among the wide range of information available about climate change, greenhouse effect, global warming, and polar regions, it's important for students to be able to distinguish facts from fake news. This activity involves presenting students with memes and statements, and they have to judge whether each statement is true or false.

This activity can be implemented before the theoretical study of environmental topics, as a way to introduce the subject and stimulate curiosity. It can also serve as a lighthearted assessment to check if students have understood the subjects studied, while analyzing the phenomenon of spreading fake news and developing strategies to recognize them. It's suggested to integrate the activity with the experiment "Climate Change and Sea Level Rise," the educational game "Polar Journey," and conclude the instructional sequence with the activity "Climate Change: What Can You Do?"
