This activity is designed to help students independently research both sides of the "fracking" debate in order to form their own arguments regarding hydraulic fracturing and the effect that it has on our environment and water resources.
A blank foldable is provided to help organize information found at various sources and summarize both sides.
This activity is a great starting point for a class discussion or summarizing essay.
This resource includes:
-Teacher background on using the lesson
-Student background information on fracking
-A Pro/Con Foldable for students to use as they research both sides of this issue
