Product Description
In this Webquest, students will meander through 3 layers of activities. At each layer, children may choose which activities/questions to do. Each is worth so many points, depending on its difficulty or involvement, and students are given a minimum point requirement. In layer C (Comprehension), they will research to gain a basic understanding of terms associated with the gas drilling industry, such as aquifers, shale, watersheds, wetlands, & frac(k)ing. In layer B (Best thinking and Problem Solving), they are asked several "Why" and "What if" type questions such as "Why do they have to drill vertically and then horizontally to get the gas?" and "How might the drilling affect aquifers?" and "List at least 3 reasons why some people are for or against the drilling." In Layer A (Activities that show learning)students are given choices to make maps, posters, or essays that show what they have learned. This brings in Math (Show how many gallons of water are needed for fracking.), science (how fracking could affect watersheds or animal habitats), social studies (map of location, including landforms and major cities) and language arts (persuasive and informational essays).
