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

Global warming is an important issue to middle school students in many ways. My project will change them into thinking that they can help their school communities. They can help in many ways such as recycling, and encouraging their school board to install wind turbines or other stuff that can help the planet, such as an alternate energy source. Middle school students will also learn that they should reduce their carbon footprint.
They will learn that they can make a difference!

The Factories That Pollute

Introduction: Hello! Welcome to my global warming map story project. I will take you on a tour to see which factories that pollute. Factories are one of the most reasons of pollution today. That is a lot of smoke. I hope you like it!

Map Points:

I think these presentations will tell them to stop the polluting or all life may be washed away quickly. They should shut down some minor factories, reduce the work days, or just leave it how it is so the Earth can rot.

Reflection: I think it should be issued to middle schoolers because it should not only be concerned by adults. It effects everyone so we should get involved too.

Reflection:i think we need to learn to because we live here too!

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
  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
  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")
    _ 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.
