Product Description

In this engaging minilesson, students click on a link to read about the shrinking Aral Sea and answer questions. At the conclusion of the reading/questions, students are asked to complete a writing prompt that summarizes the reading using cause and effect and evidence from the text. A time lapse link is included for students to see the progression of the Aral Sea shrinking.

I use this lesson when we discuss political and physical boundaries to emphasize the problems associated with using physical boundaries as political borders. It can also be used to reinforce Geography Standard 2 regarding how man interacts with and changes the environment.
