This unit is designed for a bilingual classroom, with instruction in Spanish, but much of the information is also translated into English. In this unit, students will learn about the positive and negative impacts humans have on their environments. The goal of this unit is to help students understand the importance of making positive changes to help our natural environments grow. Through class discussion, hands on experimentation, reading, and researching, the students will be able to develop an understanding of negative changes happening in our world. At the end of the unit, students will be expected to develop a short presentation that touches on one specific man-made disaster and how it affects one specific community.
