Today we outlined 7 issues that affect natural cycles and discussed them.  We focused on Radioactive contamination since NB relies on this energy source from Point Lepreau in Saint John.  The historic examples of nuclear disasters are Chernoboyl in Ukraine (1986) and Fukushima in Japan (2011).  We watched a video about the Fukushima Disaster and took down 10 points for is in the lesson.  Also gave out notes on all the cycles (see attached lesson) and promoted our new Facebook page! HOMEWORK: -  continue to work on research paper and ecopoint activities -  begin preparing for unit test (see lesson for review)
