Using an online, interactive map application created from scientific data, students will observe the potential effect of rising sea levels caused by global warming. Students will then conduct their own experiment to observe what would happen if glacial ice were to melt and how it could affect cities. Students will then locate local cities and famous monuments on the online global warming map and write what could happen to these cities if sea levels were to rise. After the lesson, students will discuss way that they can help the environment.

This lesson plan is very detailed and incorporates most of the meaningful attributes a proper lesson plan should have. It also manages to include technology usage, which is fantastic. Students will be using an interactive map on the computer (entry level integration) to locate New Orleans. The map allows you to set sea levels. This is a great start to the lesson, as it incorporates active attributes right away. Furthermore, the lesson is authentic in that it requires students to complete a hands on experiment activity that directly involves how global warming can affect flooding. Constructive attribute is added when the students use their findings and newly learned knowledge to come up with 3 ideas on how to reduce CO2 emissions. It doesn’t have much cooperative aspect, but that can easily be put in if there is enough time. Also, more technology possibly could’ve been used for a subject of this scale (at least adoption level).
