FOCUS Learning - Project Based Curriculum

 In a hands-on, small group format, the kids in FOCUS are studying the effects of greenhouse gases and carbon footprint, making observations and developing a standpoint on using fossil fuel.  They created a continent using modeling clay; including mountains, valleys, peninsulas, and islands. They made written observations about what happened when water was added; when the "polar" ice melted and then drew conclusions about what happened to the cities, people, forests, etc.
