This activity covers GSE standard SS6G8 - I can explain the major concerns of Europeans (acid rain in Germany, air pollution in the United Kingdom (UK), & the nuclear disaster in Chernobyl, Ukraine).
Using the Jigsaw Strategy, you will: conduct research on the environmental concerns of Europeans based upon the standard above. After, you will break up into expert research groups based upon the environmental concerns of these countries: Germany, United Kingdom, or Ukraine. In your group, you will research your expert country. After this, you will return to your “home” group to share your research and receive research from your peers.
This listing includes a graphic organizer for expert and home groups. This is a fun, engaging, and differentiated activity for your class. You will need to provide resources for students to draw their information from.
