I chose to focus on Science because I feel there is a broad range of learning that goes on through science and the act of learning through doing. I thought it would particularly interesting to have the students look into earth natural disasters and current events that take place and find the meaning behind why such events are happening and research and find scientific reasons to support their findings. Also the effects that humans have on the world and how it is changing due to our responses.
