This video is a great lead in to get students thinking and talking about their perspective on global warming, and weather modification (cloud seeding) in particular. The lesson plan is designed to be part of a unit on writing persuasive essays. Students need to choose a thesis and 3 supporting arguments either in favor or against weather modification. This will help prepare them to write and focus their essays.
