A Prairie Problem

 


The Task

Each person on your team will research, analyze and provide information from his or her perspective on the topic of prairie preservation, the need for additional housing in the community, and the impact of new housing developments on the prairie ecosystem.

Try to find an expert in your community or county or via the WWW with the same or similar occupation as your assigned role. You might email that person and ask questions about their career and the ways their job assists with conservation of the environment.

Ask for additional resource information or their opinion about your research project. Include information in your email message with your name, school, grade, why you are seeking this information, your question, and a sentence thanking the expert.
