An IT based lesson that I used for a year 8 mixed ability science group. An investigation into the impacts of mining on the community/environment etc. Pupils get to be either an environmental campaigner or a mining company boss . There is a powerpoint to start the lesson. I also showed them a shor More…t movie clip of the grand canyon. Mining/rocks/environment/extraction Feedback appreciated thanks :-)
