Allow your students to learn through inquiry with this research based, partner assignment. They will study the impact of a factor related to human activity that threatens the sustainability of a terrestrial or aquatic ecosystem in your area. The activity is in word and is fully customization.
Your students will gain research as well as presentations skills and be given a chance to use their own device (smart phone, etc.) in the classroom if you see fit.
This activity was designed for a secondary ecology unit but can easily be adjusted to fit both elementary as well as middle school science classes.
