These eleven Environmental Science Pros and Cons worksheets encourage students to see issues from multiple perspectives. They allow students to practice research and critical thinking skills. A detailed answer key with possible responses is included.
The topics included are agriculture, managing waste, fossil fuels, conventional energy alternatives to fossil fuels, renewable energy sources, city planning, transportation, environmental economics, environmental policy, population growth, and soil science. Before completing each worksheet, students should have a basic knowledge about each of these topics.
I give my students these handouts as we cover various chapters throughout the course. They are collected as study guides before the tests. Students learn about pros (thumbs up) and cons (thumbs down) of various environmental issues and strategies. I encourage them to conduct outside research while completing these, in addition to using their notes. My students research three pros and cons for each issue or strategy mentioned. Each pro and con is worth one point, for a total of 18 points possible on each worksheet.
