Tools for project

What do we need to give the kids so that they can do the project?

We need graphic organizers…

  • Problem
  • General Research
  • Pro/Con
  • Analysis
  • Proposal for change – be able to answer questions about short term and long term effects
  • Present proposal

Can we marry cool activities with the above format? Do we want activities or just have it be about discussion/debate?

Class can evaluate each proposal.  Maybe go back to the drawing board after critique.

Do examples for each industry – plus add someone worried about healthy water (hits bioaccumulation area).

Looking at a simulation.

Could put students answers on website.

This is chunk of unit so could start under the umbrella or biodiversity.

How much can we push to change and how much can people handle?
