Environmental Science Current Events Assignment
Environmental science is a study of current events. As new technologies develop, as politics change, and as the human population grows, our impact and influence on the environmental also changes.
For this current events assignment, students will find an environmental science (less than 3 years old) article addressing some aspect of environmental science that covered recent in class. To maximize the effectiveness of the article search, try this current events custom search engine.
This assignment works well as an end-of-unit application assignments. Students can find more current issues, research, or technologies and apply some of the basic concepts from their environmental science class in a new way. The custom search engine is useful in narrowing the sites that students can use, and eliminating much of the "noise" found on a typical search.
