In this PBL experience, the focus is on creating environmental awareness of either 1. the decline of honeybees, 2. an invasive species, or 3. ocean cleanup. Students will choose whether to create a podcast, social media campaign, or children's book. The following is provided in this resource:
You will need to have computers for research and technology capabilities to allow students to record a podcast, shoot a video, make a poster, and create a children's book.
The final product is the focus of this project. This is a true PBL activity. If you're looking for a polished, specific outcome, do this.
PBL teaches the unspoken curriculum, in addition to the spoken. Through research, teamwork, and presentation, students will gain insight into multiple environmental situations present in our society. They will also communicate with one another, use technology - possibly in a new way - , work as a team, and produce a final, genuine product.
Enjoy teaching again.
