Humans have been in long-term relationships with the three main fossil fuels: coal, oil, and natural gas. Which fossil fuel is the “best” for humans? Do your research and explain which one you think is the best candidate for a long-term relationship with humans over time.
Students research answers to questions like "What are some of your worst traits?" (What are some negative effects of this fossil fuel?) and "Where is your family from?" (Where is this fossil fuel found?)
Students will then write a summary answering choosing which fossil fuel they think is "best" for a long-term relationship with humans.
Teacher could also have students submit their best answers and play a class game of "The Dating Game" ;-)
Funny answers await you.
I use this when I teach Ecology, specifically as a review after we've covered fossil fuels: coal, oil, and natural gas.
