“We're Conservation International. We protect nature for the benefit of all 7 billion people on Earth—because people need nature to thrive.”
Twitter keeps us up to date on the current status of things in the world and this lesson is meant to show students how to use Twitter in an academic way to reach the topic of environmental conservation. It is also a chance for them to learn that situations in the world are ever changing.
The guide has them read through the feed and examine it for information and also requires them to consider what future trends maybe coming regarding this topic.
They don't need Twitter accounts to do this activity! I provide the Twitter research link directly on the student guide and list the account username they are to search at the top as well.
Teaching time would take around 40 minutes with peer sharing.
You can use this as a sub plan, homework assignment or as classwork.
