|Investigative Question or Issue: How does a river in the Adirondacks compare with a river on a different continent?|
Teacher needs to develop a list of 12 curriculum appropriate questions for their students to use in the interview process.
In groups of 4, "interview" a river in the Adirondacks near your school district. Research using resources provided (including internet).
Choose (or assign) a river on another continent and "interview" that river:
Each member of the group will orally answer 3 of the questions for each river and provide a graphic (computer or hand drawn) to supplement answer. Students should be creative in their sharing of the interview. At the end of the interview, the group will share a complete picture of the river from source to mouth, highlighting the major questions used in the interview. The interview should be concluded by a comparison/contrast of lifestyles on the two rivers.
