Week 5 Tasks
Celebrating Earth Day!
Step One: Choose your topic
What are you interested in? Is there a topic you’re passionate about? Or maybe there’s a topic you’re not very familiar with and you’d like to find out more about?
Select one of the environmental topics in the diagram above or choose your own.
Step Two: Find resources
You might need to do a little bit of research to write your post.
👉🏽 Remember: You cannot copy and paste text off another website and use it as your own. This is illegal and called plagiarism. You must write information in your own words.
👉🏽Include all websites that you looked at for information.
Step Three: Things to include in your post.
- An explanation of your chosen environmental issue.
- Why this is an issue that you’re interested in. Did you hear about it on the news? Is it a problem in your local community? Is it something you haven’t heard of but wanted to learn more about?
- Some facts about your issue.
- Tips on how people can help (for example, if your topic is plastic pollution, you might give tips about using cloth shopping bags and avoiding disposable food wrappers).
