use with human impact section of living environment.

can come off as boring or childish (too cartoony) but good information

break into groups and either work on different areas or group picks a different part of their hom type (ie class all does city each group picks different are such as brown field or hospital)

good to reinforce the fact that we add a lot of wierd things to our environment and that we have to be carful with certain things
