Dear Division 16,
For this week’s assignment, please read these two articles about the Site C dam in North Eastern British Columbia.
These articles give two perspectives about the need for the dam and the effects on the communities that live around the proposed dam – especially those of the Aboriginal communities.
Please consider the different perspectives represented in the articles and answer the following question:
Thinking about the Site C dam, explain one effect you think it will have on ONE of the following:
- The Carbon Cycle
- The Water Cycle
- The habitat of animals around the dam
Please use full sentences and explain your thinking. Be sure to make connections between the articles and the learning we have done in class.
I look forward to your responses!
