I will do a Hunger Banquet with my students and all freshman World Culture classes to bring awareness about people (especially children) in need worldwide of an adequate food supply and clean drinking water. I will also use the examples of biomes when teaching them in my classes. I will compare characteristics of the critters (flora and fauna) found in each of the biomes to those native to Wisconsin.
I will research population, birth and death rate, population pyramid, education, income and crime statistics for each of the countries we visit. I will also research biome and critter distribution.
Preparation During Travel
I will take pictures of the poorer and wealthier regions and people to provide contrast of haves and have-nots. I will also take pictures of evidence of biome characteristics. I will take pictures of every critter I see and attempt to identify it!
