Pollution is an issue that has far reaching consequences on the environment and the organisms, including humans, that depend on that environment. Jumpstart your thinking by considering: What is impacting the bay? How do the pollutants reach the bay? How do the pollutants impact you? 1111 2222 3333 6666 5555 4444 Next

BCPS Curriculum O-15 Using charts, photographs, and diagrams, the student will recognize and describe that environmental changes can have local, regional, and global consequences. KSI-A Identify and describe a local, regional, or global environmental issue. KSI-B Describe how natural processes change the environment. KSI-C Identify and describe how human activities produce changes in natural processes. KSI-D Recognize and explain the impact of a changing human population on the use of natural resources and on environmental quality. Maryland State Curriculum Maryland State Curriculum Standard 6.0 Environmental Science: Students will use scientific skills and processes to explain the interactions of environmental factors (living and non-living) and analyze their impact from a local to a global perspective. Common Core State Standards Reading: 1. Read closely to determine what the text says explicitly and to make logical inferences from it; cite specific textual evidence when writing or speaking to support conclusions drawn from the text. Writing: 7. Conduct short as well as more sustained research projects based on focused questions, demonstrating understanding of the subject under investigation. Standards for the 21st Century Learner Standards for the 21st Century Learner 1.1.6 Read, view, and listen for information presented in any format (e.g. textual, visual, media, digital) in order to make inferences and gather meaning. 2.1.3 Use strategies to draw conclusions from information and apply knowledge to curricular areas, real-world situations, and further investigations. Maryland Technology Literacy Standards for Students 3.0 : Use a variety of technologies for learning and collaboration. Time Frame: Two forty-five minute class periods Differentiation: Direct students to use comprehension tools included in databases, such as: audio read-aloud, labeled reading levels, and embedded dictionaries. Learning Styles: Field Dependent | Field Independent |Global Understanding | Analytical Understanding | Active | Reflective | Visual | Auditory | Tactile AVID Strategies: Inquiry Based Learning Graphic Organizers Costa’s questioning Gallery Walk for Assessment Notes to the teacher: Consult with your School Library Media Specialist to implement this Slam Dunk Lesson.
