  • StandardsNEW

I'm usually not big on digital projects - but my students and I love this one! It's a fun and engaging way to have students do exactly what the Next Generation Science Standard MS-ESS3-3 (or 08-ESS3-3) says: "Apply scientific principles to design a method for monitoring and minimizing a human impact on the environment."

In this 3 - 4 day project, students will:

  • Choose and analyze a scenario where humans have had a negative impact on the environment (centered around the air, water, and land pollution)
  • Decide exactly what the negative impact is
  • Design a solution to minimize further human impact
  • Give feedback to peers, and improve their project based off of peer feedback

What you get:

  • Google Docs/Slides/Forms AND Microsoft Word versions of everything - FULLY EDITABLE!
  • Two possible learning targets
  • Detailed possible procedures, including how to use this project in the Google Classroom
  • An introduction PowerPoint/Google Slides that explains the entire process to students
  • A rubric for the presentation
  • A peer feedback form in both Word and Google Form formats
  • Two full student samples

Materials Required:

  • Access to technology

Everything is designed for as little front-end work as possible.

NGSSMS-ESS3-3
Apply scientific principles to design a method for monitoring and minimizing a human impact on the environment. Examples of the design process include examining human environmental impacts, assessing the kinds of solutions that are feasible, and designing and evaluating solutions that could reduce that impact. Examples of human impacts can include water usage (such as the withdrawal of water from streams and aquifers or the construction of dams and levees), land usage (such as urban development, agriculture, or the removal of wetlands), and pollution (such as of the air, water, or land).
