My rating of this resource: *****

My experience using this resource:
Freshwater Ecology

Topic I was teaching:
Watershed issues

My learning goal for which this resource was used:
To start students talking about watershed issues

Course Level:
Intro or Regular

How I/my students used the resource:
Students were shown the comic about the person that runs a paper mill and a water cleaning plant down stream and asked to tell everyone what they saw and what the issues were. This was done through a class Blog and students were required to comment on other student comments.

Value Added:
Increases student engagement and motivation, Allowed a topic of watershed issues to be presented

Large collection of comics that can be used in the classroom of any science class

That you can not download them to your own site
