Save The Pacific Northwest Tree Octopus

Save The Pacific Northwest Tree Octopus | Geography Education | Scoop.it
Information about the endangered Pacific Northwest Tree Octopus and what you can do to save it.

 

So many of our student passively accept what they read on the internet as truth, especially if the website looks professional.  Since we are trying to help foster critical-thinking skills, we can present this website as though it were factual and encourage our students to analyze, critique and evaluate the 'information' presented.  Personally, I wish I lived in a world where the Tree Octopus was safe to freely climb in the old-growth forests.
