Activity Summary

Now that students have learned about sources of nitrogen pollution the Chesapeake Bay, and where it comes from, now is there chance to do something about it! In this multi-day activity, students plan and implement an action project to reduce pollution to the Bay. They will have to make choices about what project to do, and how to do it in order to be successful in doing their part to improve the health of the Bay.

A Note About Student Input and Planning: Like other components of the MWEE, significant student input should be involved in planning their action project. Because project options are so diverse, the activity guide below can be somewhat vague at times. As always, consider what is best for you and your students, and be creative.
