Is That Legal? A Case of Acid Rain

Develop an environmental case study! Elementary learners discover how a case study is used as an analysis tool. The goal of this activity is to show pupils how techniques of persuasion (including background, supporting evidence, storytelling, and call to action) are used to develop an argument for or against a topic. The example they look at is the developing acid rain problem in New York's Adirondack Mountains.

I rely heavily on Lesson Planet for finding the resources I use to teach my two daughters at home. Although I am not qualified to teach, I am confident they are both progressing and enjoying the lessons. Being a mother and a teacher at the same time is the best job I have had. Thank you Lesson Planet!!
