This Protecting Wetlands webquest comes with a worksheet and an answer key. Like the others in the Environment Webquest Bundle, this webquest points to information that your students will need to complete the worksheet. Besides printing the worksheets, no other prep is needed to conduct this activity in your Environmental Science course.
Students will explore the many varieties of wetlands (peatlands, mangroves, swamps, marshes, etc.) and the important ecosystem services that wetlands provide (including carbon storage, water purification, flood protection, and stabilization of shorelines).
