In my 6th Grade Academic Technology classes, the students have been learning about various water issues that have taken place globally, nationally, and now locally. Students have analyzed interactive drought maps of our country, worked on inventions to help water scarcity in developing nations, and now students are currently researching and creating solutions to a local issue in our community. Currently, there is a beaver constructing a dam in our local river.

Students have researched, analyzed the area, and now are creating solutions to this unique situation. Upon completion of the research, finding the location of this issue using Google Earth, and creating solutions to this situation. Students have recorded a video presentation thoroughly explaining this unique situation in our community!
