Project 3 - Environmental Exchange
Students will use the World Wide Web to access information regarding local and global environmental problems. Students will compare local environmental problems as experienced in Bay St. George with similar problems as experienced in other parts of the province and compare solutions. They will also compare global environmental problems as experienced in Bay St.George with similar environmental problems as experienced in other parts of the planet and compare solutions.
Students will access those agencies, both public and private that govern, monitor and
advocate for specific local and global environmental issues.
Environmental Science 3205 objectives
Language - to gather, collate and organize information to address a specific issue or question.
The forty students currently use the Learning Resource Centre's 16 computers equipped with various CD-ROM databases (Globe and Mail, Maclean's CD etc.) to do research on and type up their assignments. The purchase of a fileserver and networking software is underway so that each of the 16 computers in the Learning Resources Centre will have Internet access once STELLAR Schools Status has been achieved.
Pairs of students will present their findings at the end of the project period and prepare a research paper on a specific chosen topic.
The research paper will form a beginning database for next year's class as they add current information.
