|Brief Description Objectives Materials and Resources Activity Description Internet Resources|
Students present their research reports on global warming, along with any other associated products (models, diagrams, Web-pages, etc.) to the rest of the class and school.
Materials and Resources
In developing our lessons and activities, we made some assumptions about the hardware and software that would be available in the classroom for teachers who visit the LETSNet Website. We assume that teachers using our Internet-based lessons or activities have a computer (PC or Macintosh) with the necessary hardware components (mouse, keyboard, and monitor) as well as software (operating system, TCP/IP software, networking or dial-up software, e-mail and a World Wide Web client program, preferably Netscape, but perhaps Mosaic or Lynx). In the section below, we specify any "special" hardware or software requirements for a lesson or activity (in addition to those described above) and the level of Internet access required to do the activity.
Coordinate an Earth Day for the class or school, including the principal and others members of the community, where students present their reports on global warming. Prepare flyers for students to take home and encourage parents to attend the student presentations.
As an alternative, if server space is available, consider publishing the students' global warming reports on the World Wide Web. See our Professional Growth modules in the Internet Resources below to learn more about Web publishing.
For those who are interested in publishing their work on the Web, there are a variety of useful resources available to help along these lines. The following sites are places you can go to learn about making HTML documents.
