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!
