Disciplinary Core Idea
ESS3: Earth and Human Activity 

We all have an impact on the world around us. Sometimes these impacts can only be noticed through careful observation. In this activity, students will review different types of human impacts on the environment, and then identify, map, research, and develop mitigation strategies for human impacts they find in an area close to home.

Interdisciplinary with Fine Arts.

This lesson was originally written for 4th grade. With modification, this lesson could address ESS standards in 6th grade.
