Biodiversity Debate

Ninth graders debate the positive aspects of dam construction. They discuss how a dam changes the ecosystem. In groups, 9th graders research and gather information for a debate. They state their position and write a report supporting it. After the debate, the "town" votes on whether the dam should be constructed. They consider strategies for reducing the negative aspects of the dam.
