Having reviewed all tenses from previous years and the chapter vocabulary dealing with the environment, this project provides the students the opportunity to research a universally important environmental topic and relate the information to their own lives. Students will work together in groups of two to research and write a formal research paper containing at least 5 paragraphs comparing and contrasting the environmental problems of Central Virginia with those of another country of their choosing. They then choose their own method to present this information to the class. During the presentations students will take notes and ask questions. The optional culminating activity would be to form collaborative groups of 4 to produce, in a digital format, a plan to help solve the environmental issues of one country that has been studied.
Students worked in groups of 2 to determine what research tools and sources were appropriate to complete their task. Students assembled and organized their information to write a formal research paper containing at least 5 paragraphs comparing and contrasting the environmental problems of Central Virginia with those of another country of their choosing.
Students worked with a partner or partners of their choice to create a formal written document stating their research on the environmental issues of their chosen country. Students then shared their findings with their class using a digital tool of their choosing. Students then formed collaborative groups of 4 to produce, in digital format, a plan to help solve the environmental issues they hoped to solve.
Students researched and compared the environmental issues that were common of a country of their choice to the environmental issues that are common to where they live. Using digital tools of their choice, students presented their findings to their class and formulated a plan on how to solve these issues.
Students had to determine what environmental issues that were common to different parts of the world and compare their issues with the environmental issues faced where they live. Using their research, they presented their finding to their class using a digital tool of their choice. Students then had to formulate a plan to help solve the environmental issues they researched.
