In this part of the unit, students are exploring how global temperatures have changed over the past hundred years.  Students will examine tables and graphs about global temperatures and carbon dioxide levels, human consumption of food, and human consumption of natural resources.  They will find patterns in the graphs.  Based on this data, students will construct an argument about how human activities (increase in population and consumption of natural resources) cause global temperatures to increase.

Argue from Evidence: Should we ban plastics?
Read the Fine Print
Educational Use
Rating
0.0 stars

The purpose of this Roadmap is work on the Science and Engineering Practices—specifically engaging in argument from evidence and obtaining, evaluating, and communicating information. During this roadmap students will synthesize information from several articles about plastics and the environment and the role regulation plays in our communities. At the end of their research students are expected to write an opinion essay answering the question: Should we ban plastics?.
This opinion piece is also an opportunity for students to practice writing in Claim-Evidence-Reasoning. As an extension, students can then engage in a debate but this is optional based on time constraints and how ‘in depth’ you want this to be for your students.

Overall expect this to take several days 2 for research and synthesis, 1 to write their papers, and then additional time for debate.

Identify Landslide Risk Areas in Colorado

Rating
0.0 stars

In this project, students identify areas at highest risk of flooding and landslides during a major rain event. They first explore the region's dramatic geography and identify how the most flood-prone areas correspond with large population centers. Then, they determine where landslides are most likely to occur and summarize the population in these at-risk areas. Overall, students get a picture of the dangers faced in Boulder County and the costs associated with rebuilding in the wake of catastrophe.
