1. Can you design a working model that uses solar energy and heat transfer?
2. Describe the origins of pollution in the atmosphere, geosphere, and hydrosphere, (car exhaust, industrial emissions, acid rain, and natural sources), and how pollution impacts habitats, climatic change, threatens or endangers species.
3. Design Solutions to problems using technology.
4. Describe the effect humans and other organisms have on the balance of the natural world.

Today in Class:
Thursday – M-Step and Block Schedule:
The M-Step test ran extremely long – after lunch– so we only had a partial 4th hour class at the end of the day.
Friday – Block Schedule:
1.Sustainability teams discussed their Action Plans— and made more decisions regarding how they were completing these tasks. Some students finished their scientific surveys, some groups were following up with the data that their community partner / business member helped them with, some created a data table for the data,… but all groups were working on their action plans. All Action Plans are due next week Thursday.
2. Next, you defined Sustainability, and Renewable Energy. Then you identified the examples of renewable energy and 5th and 7th hours started listing the advantages and disadvantages of using these energy types. These notes will be posted on my Blog Notes directly after I post this. 1st – 4th hours will take these notes Monday, May 22.
Homework: Complete more of your Action Plan for the Sustainability Project. All actions (experiments, scientific surveys, working models,…) are due May 25.
