Is Global Warming an important issue to middle school students, and how will your project change their thinking about Global Warming?


Reflection:ANSWER: I think that my map story project will affect the world and saving the people,places, and things. I think that my map stories will have a big effect on the middle school kids when they see it because of what i explain,and what pictures I show them. I think that the middle school students will start to think about Global Warming different because they probably start recycling paper, and what ever they need to do if they care about the world. :)

Reflection: Global Warming is an important issue to middle school students in all sorts of ways. My project will change their thinking by them learning all about Global Warming at what it does to hurt are planet. Global Warming is making are earth warmer and is melting are glaciers and all these animals live on the glaciers. Factories are big polluters that is what also kills are planet. WE NEED TO START THINKING ABOUT WHAT WE NEED TO DO TO HELP. PLEASE HELP SAVE OUR PLANET. The middle school students will also learn What is causing Global Warming. Middle school students can help our planet a lot even if they are young they can do so much to help are planet!!!!!!!!!

Reflection:

I don't think so. the reason is because middle schoolers need to do other things and not worry about global warming.
I say that scientists should find the solution. they are like smarter then all of us.

Project Overview: Your Page on the Mapcasting Project will include:
  1. 4 Sections: A 3-paragraph introduction, a Mapcasts Section, Another Section that you define, and References list.
I've changed this, what I would like now is everyone to add one paragraph in front of their map, answering the question:
Is Global Warming an important issue to middle school students, and how will your project change their thinking about Global Warming?
References are still required.

  1. Find one Creative Commons image that highlights your topic taken from http://flickrcc.bluemountains.net.
  2. Your map tour made from Google Earth.
  3. A references section on the bottom. where each web page and image is cited in MLA format. You can create easy MLA citations from http://citationmachine.net.
  4. Creativity: include an interactive element or idea that is not included on this list. This could be your Section that your define.
  5. A completed Map Cast will have:
    _ at least 12 map points.
    _ Introduction and Conclusion.
    _ at least two sentences per map point of accurate information.
    _ at least 10 pictures or embedded videos borrowed and cited from the Internet.
    _ Quotations or in-text citations for each map point, telling us where you got your information ("According to www.history.com....")
    _ a references section or Works cited section showing all the websites that you used for information.
    _ at least 5 sources per person for the entire project including books, Internet web sites, magazines, TV shows, radio interviews.

DO NOT ERASE THESE DIRECTIONS UNTIL THE LAST DAY OF THE PROJECT.
