Lesson 17 Description: A Pro-Chesapeake Bay Community: Groups design a small eco-friendly community using best practices and information from their report on the Chesapeake Bays health Unit Goals: Design an environmentally friendly community. Lesson Objectives: Design an environmentally friendly water front community by its layout and by

incorporating laws/codes that require best practices. Dragonfly Pond Working in small groups, you will be representing an interest group of a community being built in the Chesapeake Bay watershed, near a pond called Dragonfly Pond. You must design a layout of the community that best meets the need of your interest group. You must also try to build the layout in a way that

reduces impact on the environment. Groups

Residents - want to live in the area Farmers - want to use the land to raise food and livestock Business interests - want to use the land for commerce and economic growth Gas station owners - want to make a living in servicing and repairing cars. Parks department personnel - want people to have a place for recreation Highway department personnel - want to maintain access in

the area Bleach factory representatives - want to preserve jobs and commerce Layout Materials All cutouts must be used. Objects may touch but not overlap. You may design additional pieces if needed. Use tap for to place down pieces. Glue wont be used until tomorrow.

Move, then wait for instructions. All groups should now move to seat together. Collect your supplies at your station. Sit quietly and wait for the next step. Pros and Cons

Before beginning, each group must make a list of pros and cons for all of the different types of land use objects. Take a few moments to make this list now. Share ideas as a class. Well make a list on the board. Begin You may begin but remember the requirements: Layout Materials

All cutouts must be used. Objects may touch but not overlap. You may design additional pieces if needed. Use tap for to place down pieces. Glue wont be used until tomorrow. Lesson 18 Description: A Pro-Chesapeake Bay Community: Groups design a small eco-friendly community using best practices and information from their report on the Chesapeake Bays health

Unit Goals: Design an environmentally friendly community. Lesson Objectives: Design an environmentally friendly water front community by its layout and by incorporating laws/codes that require best practices. Final Decisions: Review your layout and begin to make final layout decisions.

Use glue once you are sure about placement of objects. Remember the requirements: Layout Materials All cutouts must be used. Objects may touch but not overlap. You may design additional pieces if needed. Share your Designs When your group stands up, hold your design up for all to see. Tell which interest group you represent and how you made sure

your interests were met. As a class we will make suggestions on how their layout is threatening to Dragonfly Pond and how it helps to reduce impacts. Reducing the Impact Look again at all of the land uses in this activity. Consider what the people who are actually in charge of these various land uses could do in their practices

to minimize the damage to Dragonfly Pond? Draw and cutout different best practices and glue them down around the layout. Perhaps they need to make a "scrubbing filter" for the bleach factory. Reflections: What could you do that would personally reduce the impact on our watershed? Take a moment to reflect on your lifestyle and

create a list of possibilities. Turn In and Pack Up Well done! Please turn in designs to designated area and return to your seats.
