Big 6 steps


1.1
For this project, our teacher asked us to pick a type of alternative energy, so that he could put us into groups with students who were doing the same thing. We had to come up with two sets of ten Q's and A's, which we would then put on our google presentation, make a glogster to show where we got information from, create a wikipage to put all our information in, and a diigo to bookmark the websites we used.

2.1
Books on biofuels could help us find information in order to come up with an eco-friendly invention. We could go on the internet to find websites that could help us find out what biofuels we could use for our invention too. We could also go to different stores and see what projects they have on bio fuels that will give us an idea. Another thing that we could do is, we can ask adults about biofuels and how we can make our invention better.
