This science unit helps students understand how human activity impacts ecosystems and explore evidence-based solutions geared toward lessening this impact. Students will conduct a lab simulation, complete a Literary Design Collaborative research paper in the form of a National Geographic article, and deliver an oral presentation to share findings using visual aids. For easy use and customization, files are available in PDF and Word. The unit can also be downloaded in pieces or in full.
Dan Ryder teaches high school English and humanities, but his students still wind up learning computer-aided design and 3D printing. In his classes at Mt. Blue High School in Farmington, Maine, Ryder has students design and build 3D “fidgets” after learning about the impact of stress and studying social entrepreneurship.
