This unit includes 4 lessons where in Biology, students design a proposal or program to help the environment at a tourist location and in Math, students will calculate how tourism affects the economy.

Using inquiry-based reading, students will explore an anchor text and then develop their own essential and supporting questions to guide their research.

Over the course of the unit, students will explore a variety of texts and grow in their knowledge of the impact of tourism on the environment and the economy. They will also grow in their ability to use informational text to support their inquiry and research.

This is a really interesting topic! When students completed the coral reefs assignment at home and develop questions, did they have any training or guidance as to how they were to develop those questions? If so, it would be helpful if you attached how you did that. Great work!

I enjoyed going through the final presentations that were created by the students. I thought they did an excellent job of providing detailed analyses of the relationships between the environment, tourism, and the economy. In looking at the students' work, I wonder if your team had also had difficulty getting students to incorporate the math standards into their projects. We had a similar issue in that the math standards we were hoping to align, particularly ones that involve computational skills, did not seem to show up in the students' final products.

Integrating the math was more challenging for sure!
