I made this for my class (so it has my name and city specific info inside of it). However, I thought it could be a good place to start when tackling a major project like this.
This word doc contains the various documents that students will need to complete a TN standard aligned research project on environmental issues that humans have caused/impacted. These issues include water pollution, air pollution, the burning of fossil fuels, deforestation, release of CFC's, littering, and pesticide/fertilizer use. To view the document without the comments, you can turn them off in the view section of word.
This purchase will include an assignment overview, presentation requirements, a mini-lesson on using books and recording sources, a mini-lesson on finding reliable sources, a mini-lesson on presenting to a class, source cards for students to record information, a research checklist, a note-taking handout, and a rubric.
This document does not include any specific websites or articles for students to use in their research. The idea is that they are finding these articles on their own on the internet or in library books that you provide.
