How are decisions made to clear roads? Investigate this performance task

Go to, then use the Google single-sign on with your school email address. Check out this performance task for seventh grade that asks this driving question:

How are decisions made regarding the clearing of roads to keep people safe during and after winter weather events?

In this performance task, students will research and consider how streets are built, how traffic influences the thickness of the street, and how the environment impacts the engineering of roadways. This performance task ties in so perfectly with careers found in your local community - try to make a connection with someone from the Iowa DOT or a local civil engineering firm.
