Featured Curriculum & Research
This unit has students apply knowledge from math, science, technology, and the social sciences to address one big question: How does understanding currents influence the human impact on the environment? Through participating in this unit, this unit students will develop an understanding of 1) how currents form, 2) how the environment affects currents and currents affect the environment, and 3) how they can make a change to our environment by understanding currents.
Students will explore the history of their local community by visiting places of cultural significance to the communities development. Student partners will then research an environmental concern in their community and present their findings to an audience that consists of school, family, and/or community members. The unit was designed for students living in ‘Ewa Beach and Kapolei on Oahu island but the ideas and content can be adapted to other locations within Hawai‘i and around the world.
