INTRODUCTION

Our world is in danger. We are performing actions that hurt our environment. We need to make a lot of changes to avoid this problem gets worse.

We need to deal with our waste, all the stuff we throw to the dustbin. We need to create a recycling project in our school that helps to improve the environment. We can have a sustainable world if we begin in our educational community.

Recycling is one of the easiest and most traditional ways to start having a positive impact on your environment and community. So, let’s begin the action.

Final grade
These are the grades you will get according to your final score.

This webquest has been designed to involve our students in a recycling project, that will not only make students aware of the world problems we can solve, but also to involve them in an active plan of recycling that can be a lot of fun.
In general, people are aware of the problems we are facing in our environment, but very few take action to avoid these problems getting worse.
The project is designed for students in 8th Grade, with an intermediate level of English, who will not only be working with the English language, but who will also be working for a better future of our planet. The students will be working with the websites we have previously checked and they are specifically chosen to reach the main goal of the project, so no further information is needed
This is a cross-cultural project, since it involves topics and contents they have worked with in the Science subject.
These are important considerations for our project for you as a teacher in order to have successful results:
Check the websites and links before the students begin working on them. Make sure they are safe and that theywork smoothly and that they contain information that is relevant to the project.
Check the groups and make any necessary changes for all the members in the group to have a role.
Discuss with your students the whole project in order to ensure yourself that the project is understood by the whole class.
Set specific dates with your students to work and check how this project is going on.
Inform the students’ parents and the whole school community about this project.
