Shasta Dam: How High is Too High?

Research water use in California, environmental protection laws, and the proposition to raise Shasta Dam by 200 feet. Researchers use their findings to build an argument which will be presented at a mock decision panel. Groups then represent each side of the debate, or role-play as different members of the US Bureau of Reclamation. A fun addition to an environmental science class or any debate unit!

As an online high school teacher, LP has helped me tremendously with extra resources! I have been able to use additional supplemental materials from here and students are able to gain more knowledge and a different perspective.
