EIGHTH GRADE    

   HUMAN IMPACTS 

Human impacts on the Everglades ecosystem.

Students will evaluate different benefits (ecosystem services) that the Everglades provides to humans. They will learn about six different threats that impact the Everglades ecosystem and humans, and design a poster for each threat.

Students will be presented with different “water dilemmas” affecting the Everglades. Teams will analyze the different scenarios, select which action they would take related to the dilemmas, and justify their reasoning.
