Activity Description of "Endangered Species Newsletter"

Title Endangered Species Newsletter
Audience Grades 10-12
Abstract I can't remember where I got the idea (AE or Labnet) but supposedly teachers would have students design endangered speciesnewsletters (requiring work in the Arts and Humanities, as well as Science) to be sent to other schools. I took the idea and expanded it. My students designed and developed newsletters that were just sent to the Dept of Interior, Senators, Representatives, and ecological organizations. An outstanding activity!!! Thanks to whoever originally thought of it.
