Next 10 is a nonprofit group in our state that has developed some excellent online learning tools that relate to California, particularly related to the environment.
They also have an extraordinary tool that lets you discover the carbon footprint of your community based on your zipcode.
I all three of these tools are accessible to Intermediate English Language Learners, and I’m adding them to The Best Sites To Introduce Environmental Issues Into The Classroom.
They also have a California Budget Challenge activity where users make decisions about our state budget (which is several months late already!). It’s a good exercise, but probably not accessible to any but the most advanced English Language Learners.
