Yo! Check Out My Student's Water Cycle Project! Yo!

After a unit on water, Florida's underground water supply, and the water cycle, my biology kids were told to come up with a water resource protection project.
They could use any format to deliver their message, so there was alot of choice involved.
In fact, I gave them a sheet of possible project media that listed over a hundred possible venues, from epitaphs and resumes, to skits, and songs.

A few of my kids chose music as their medium.
I believe we had 4 rap songs, but this one really rocked the house.

It's by a neat kid who works hard for his grades and who loves to rap.

It's not so much a video, but more of an audio file.

Crank up your volume and enjoy!




Give them choices and they will find a way.
This kid did.

I love the way he starts of all dweeby voiced, and then kicks it up.

Pretty impressive! Does he need a vidiographer to help him put some scenes with his rap?
I know where he can get one for cheap after December! I suppose I could adopt the stage name: Thunder "G"! ;-)

Great job Eugene! Kids like you give me some hope for the future. FC, very good you're teaching kids how everything is connected. How about sending this rap to BP?

Your water can't be dirty, even if your 30 (or something like that!). A seed has been planted, the kind that lasts a lifetime.
