In this highly-engaging activity, students navigate through natural and manmade features to understand how environment changes over time. Students examine how humans have modified their environment with the Panama Canal and Hoover Dam, how natural features like the Bering Land Bridge and Great Barrier Reef have evolved throughout history, how cities like Machu Picchu were once consumed by their environment, and how rising global temperatures, whether an effect of human behavior or a natural part of Earth's cycle, have and will continue to have an impact on our surroundings. In the end, students will answer the overarching question, "How has our environment changed over time?"
Included are six engaging stations, three on natural features and three on manmade features. Each station includes a clickable link that leads to a short video to further teach the feature. Also included is a two-page graphic organizer, a final writing prompt, an optional student project (where students choose to develop an exhibit board or create a Google site), and a teacher key!
This resource also includes a Google 1;1 version!
