Bird Flu Video Activity
A  WebQuest for Middle School or Junior High, WebQuest Agricultural Series by Missouri Farm Bureau and Missouri State University 

Look at these video clips of bird situations:

Clip 1 - Wild geese on a farmer's pond

Clip 2 - Poultry at an auction

Clip 3 - A turkey farm

Step 1: Make a graphic organizer detailing the vulnerabilities to Bird Flu that you observed in each of the three video clips.

Step 2: Write a 1-3 page paper comparing and contrasting these vulnerabilities.

  • Be sure you identify the problems you will be addressing in the opening paragraph.
  • You must identify and explain fully what you feel is the greatest vulnerability in each of the three situations.
  • Include a possible scenario for solving each of the problems.
  • Your conclusion or summary paragraph must reintegrate the problems and briefly describe your solution.

Step 3: In the final project, include:

  • a page with the completed graphic organizer
  • a first draft with corrections in red ink, use normal English correction symbols
  • a final draft with no errors in spelling or grammatical usage.
