- Join to access all included materials
Damming rivers has been a case of necessity versus negative environmental impact since the process began. Kids take on the role of a stakeholder in the proposed damming of the Danube River. They begin by reading arguments for and against the project, and then they make a timeline to help synthesize the information. In small groups, they make arguments for or against the project, giving concrete evidence for their assertions. The instructional activity concludes as the class prepares a three-paragraph response to the original guiding question.
- The lesson is well-designed and includes maps, images, and reading passages
