Your Town in the Past, Present, and Future

Description: After looking at pictures of Bodie, California, students see that this once booming gold mining town became a ghost town after the gold mining industry went downhill. People had to leave the town to look for work, and eventually no one was left. It's now a state historic park. Using this knowledge students research an environmental issue that affects their town or region, draw pictures assuming two possible outcomes for the problem in fifty years (one negative and one positive), and create a plan to educate the community about this issue.
