Create a web to show the direct effects of an action.
In this activity, students will use the criteria and a thinking strategy to consider the direct effects of an action. While this activity uses examples related to environmental actions, any science concept, phenomenon, or content could be used to help nurture the competency of evaluating.
Ask your students to create a web that shows the direct environmental effects of their daily actions. They can use words and drawings. Remind them to use the criteria for direct effect.
Throughout the activity consider how well students:
Guide students in using the “Assessing my ability to identify direct effects” rubric during the activity.

Make power line safety fun with these puzzles and crosswords.
Create a rainstorm, learn how to stay safe around downed power lines and guess what should go in a home emergency kit.
