Is My House on an Abandoned Waste Site?
and is replicated here as part of the SERC Pedagogic Service.
Course: Our Earth
I present the students with a scenario about buying a house then getting a letter from the department of environmental conservation about the abandoned waste site on which their house is built. The students and I engage in some role-playing on who and what to believe. Then I ask them to decide what they need to know to make a decision for themselves.
