This resource is a good opening activity for students to better understand the causes and effects of urban sprawl.

Topics covered include the uses of dams, environmental effects, social effects, a timeline of implementation of the solution, mitigating environmental and social effects of functioning dams, and factors that should be considered when building dams.

The reading guide asks several guided questions for note-taking and wraps up with an extension personal opinion essay that requires students to support their viewpoint with information from the article.
