Why Lesson Planet?
High schoolers take on the role of different small town community members to discuss ways to protect the local wellhead. A simulated committee meeting encourages them to consider how the freshwater supply is used by the different residents and what aspects need to be looked after. Everything you need to carry out this pertinent lesson is provided.
- Fosters critical thinking, communication, and collaboration
- Provides a map, an article from the town's newspaper, and a committee meeting agenda to support the role play activity
- Adaptable to Common Core State Standards for literacy in science and technical subjects
