Special Education: Pesticides, GMOs and Sustainability - Printable or Google
- Google Apps™
During this engaging research project, students will review and interact with the Twitter feed of an organization bringing you breaking news from around the globe on pesticides, GMOs, and sustainable agriculture. This science worksheet guides students to consider a variety of topics on these subjects and to consider how we can reduce the impact of humans on the environment. They will also consider how the environment affects their health.

(Link to regular education version)
This worksheet comes in multiple formats so you can use it in any teaching situation!
- Digital PDF for electronic sharing or easy printing
- Includes link to Google Slide Hyperdoc with fillable fields for students
- Research link embedded directly in the guide
The student guide has students read through the social network feed, choose tweets of interest to research, and finally have them share with partners before completing a reflective essay.
They don't need Twitter accounts to do this activity. I provide the Twitter research link directly on the student guide and list the account they are to search at the top as well.
Twitter keeps us up to date on the current status of things in the world and this lesson is meant to show students how to use Twitter in an academic way. It is also a chance for them to learn that situations in the world are ever-changing.
You can use this as a sub plan, homework assignment, or classwork.
