Project Name: Fight For Your Life


The Gulf Oil Spill is only the latest disaster to affect massive amounts of water, the source of life, what are challenges to our water and how do we protect one of our main source of life.

Project Planning

Use the following as a starting point only, you do not need to stick to this template


The Gulf Oil Spill is only the latest disaster to affect massive amounts of water, the source of life. Look at droughts as well as floods in our Nation and in the world, accidents like the Gulf spill, Chernobyl and more, and you'll see more and more that the world is in a simmering war over water. What about where you live? What are the challenges to your community's water, and what plans are there for it? Will you need to fight for your "life", and how?

Students will need to create a multimedia presentation of some kind that serves as a motivator, something that creates a sense of urgency about issues that they discover. (Could we use a differentiated 2-5-8 Menu empathizing technology) In addition, they should deliver a summary of existing or proposed plans/resolutions for their community to possibly some local officials. (Students can choose to define "community" as broad or narrow as they'd like.)


The ages are 14 to 15 (9th to 10th grade). The courses that will be involved are Algebra I, Pre-Algebra, Web Design/Internet Essentials, Language Arts (9th), American Government, Earth Science/Ecology/Biology.


Mid-September to November (but this may change).
