10. Canadian emissions and greenhouse gases (pg 390-395): prevention of global warming in
Canada, relative to other countries, Canadian forests, international issues

Project Requirements
1) Written Work
Create a ONE PAGE (one side only, at least 12 point font) handout for your fellow students covering your
topics information to be handed out during or at the end of the presentation (pictures, diagrams and can be fill
in the blank). Information covered in the presentations and on the handouts is fair game for assessments.
2) Presentation
Create a presentation that covers your material in a creative way. Presentations may NOT exceed 10 minutes
including any content or activities that you may choose to include. Include an introduction (activity), learning
section and a review section). Be creative! Does not have to follow a traditional teacher lesson. All
presentation materials must be submitted to D2L. Examples: video, skit, song, rap, model,
game, workshop, newscast, interview, etc.
3) References – include a list of resources and references that you have used. Refer to
APA handout and website.
4) Submit work to D2L: Handout, Presentation Materials and References
5) Dates:

Work Periods – May 8 (independent work due – read section, 2 secondary sources and presentation
ideas, Nov 26 and May 20 (Handout Due)
