An exploration that uses Google Earth to pinpoint sources of pollution locally and across the country and the effects on the surrounding watershed.
As a former groundwater researcher, I found this activity exceptional in its use of high-quality digital resources and their application in teaching analytical skills very applicable to real situations. I like the progressive approach using multiple layers and locations. It also also allows students to come to conclusions based on observations. Great foundation for learning how to do background research too. Could be easily adapted to college-level as well.

The activity is interesting use of integrating technology in the classroom in addition to having students engage in analyzing data. Both items are good. Instead of a poster on Glogster, I would probably choose to have students to compare and contrast two cities.
