Environmental Concerns in the Community/Field TripPrevious | Home | Next
Students at Zanker School learned about environmental concerns in their local community.
The city of Milpitas provided the class with materials that explained about pollution and
recycling in the community. The students conducted research online, using search engines
such as yahooligans.com and kidsclick.org. In addition, a docent from the Don Edwards National
Wildlife Refuge gave a presentation to the class about water pollution and its effect on the
wetlands and water systems of the Bay Area. The students kept their research notes in a journal,
which became the basis for persuasive essays.
