Lesson 1: Water Contaminants



You will research and prepare posts on various water contaminants to a class blog in a race against other class teams. The entries will be scored and points will go to the best scoring entry for each topic. The blog provides a format for you to document your research in a technology savvy way. If a blog is not possible, the posts can be done as PowerPoint slides. Each class will post a link to their blog or upload the PowerPoint slides in Collaboration Central.

You will create and record a public service announcement for radio to alert the public of the local contaminants that might be in the water. Each school will share their public service announcements via Pod Cast or other mp3 medium. Each class will select one public service announcement to share with other project participants in Collaboration Central.
