Now it is time for us to discuss our Project Idea on Global Issues: Environment.
Have a look at the following Project Idea on Tap Water below. We are going to collaboratively work on this idea together with our international partners and make an interesting presentation tackling this vital global issue.
As we have agreed, the questions in the project idea below are going to be divided among the students, so that we can all contribute with our ideas to this project.
As you could see in the document below, there are 8 important questions to answer. The following students will work on the following questions:
3. Where does tap water come from in your area? Specify the sources/origins of the incoming tap water.
4. How can you understand that tap water is not safe to drink? Mention the taste/smell/ appearance.
5. Who can you object to in your region in case you find something wrong about the tap water supplied to your home?
6. What should water be tested for? Who is responsible for water treatment services in your area?
7.Can tap water pose threat to our health? Point out the risks of infection population might be exposed to and the health problems it might cause.
All the students have to give an answer to the Question 8, by suggesting 1 or 2 specific ideas to address this issue.
8.What policies/actions can you suggest in order to protect the water sources and to get access to proper sanitation of tap water? How can we monitor the adequate work of tap water providers? Propose a few specific ideas and mention who can help us handle this vital people’s right and commodity.
You are going to choose a digital tool you would like to make the presentation in. It can be : Movenote, Voicethread, Powtoon cartoon maker, Utellstory or Animoto video maker. You can find the tutorials for these tools on Teacher's Guide Page.
Below you can see the Environment Project Ideas proposed by our members from different countries. You can join any of these Projects in order to contribute to your global peers' final work.
