Global Water Crisis
Across 6th grade curriculum, students will experience the global water crisis through hands-on application, community outreach and will be challenged to implement an action plan to conserve water in our community and raise awareness and funds for water development in an underdeveloped region.
Lincoln Magnet School’s mission states that students will achieve educational excellence through a variety of learning opportunities that will enable them to contribute to global communities. Through this culturally, environmental project, students will enrich their academic studies and make connections with past and current events. Cooperatively, students will research and problem solve issues surrounding the global water crisis with an emphasis on Illinois State Standards. Activities will contribute to lifelong learning and students will be challenged to raise awareness and implement an action plan for change. This project will culminate on April 26, 2013, with a live, dramatized performance synthesizing acquired knowledge.

In our core classes we will be exploring 3 main themes:

Water Around the World
STAGE 2: Culminating Project and Action Plan (April 9-April 26)
