The final task of this WebQuest is to apply what you have learned about the positive and negative effects of mining and in small groups make a poster to present to the class.

You specially will be making a poster in response to the following prompt:

A mining company has found a precious mineral next to your school and want to start mining. What are the positive and negative  environmental and/or human effects of having a mine site next to your school. Also include whether or not you would allow the mining company to open a mine next to your school. Take a stand and remember to back it up with specific examples from your WebQuest research!

You will be graded based on the rubric below. (Rubric was created by Tara Antonetti, Alison Bowles, Geoff Skjelbred, and Nancy Shishido.)
