6th Graders: Take a Stand

Ms. Beaufort's students were challenged to have a debate in class. Students had to decide which environmental issue was the most severe and provide evidence to their peers. One group discussed the effects of the trees in the rain forests being destroyed. The group shared that our oxygen is decreased when trees in the rain forest are cut down and even provided solutions to their counterparts! The second group discussed the pollution of Mexico City due to over population. They also shared solutions to help alleviate the problem in Mexico City.
