You will work in groups and assume different roles. These cooperative groups will first look at some background information on bowhead whales, and then information specific to their role.
Your group's task will be to work through the questions posed. You may have other questions that arise from your work in the specified websites, and in other resources available in your school and community. Your goal will be to attempt to answer this primary question:
Should ALL hunting of Bowhead Whales be prohibited?
There are no right or wrong answers to this question or others that will arise, but each group will be asked to form their opinion and be able to give reasons for their view.
Finally, each group will present the information from their point-of-view in the form of a multimedia presentation. It should contain an introduction, background information and then a conclusion with supporting evidence.
