HIVE-8-2
Most of us feel we couldn't live without our phones or computers, but our ability to have this technology comes at a cost to developing countries. Blue Gold by Elizabeth Stewart takes the reader into three very distinct modern worlds: Fiona of middle-class Canada, Sylvie of the Nyarugusu Refugee Camp in Tanzania, and Laiping of industrial China. All three are linked by coltan, a rare mineral component in all the electronic gadgets we value so highly. This workshop will combine content from geology, geography, current events, and English/Language Arts to form across-disciplinary unit. We will learn about rare minerals and their impact on the lives of others from around the world. Are we really our brothers' keeper?
