Extreme Sports Jigsaw

Ice Climbing

Today we are going further into extreme sports with a close examination of some popular extreme sports.

Your group will be assigned a sport to learn more about. Then you will teach another group about what you found out. Starting with this article from Forbes may help.  Read the beginning of it to get started, then scroll to the sport assigned to your group.

Be prepared to explain the following about the sport assigned to your group.
  1. What is this sport? Describe it, including location, equipment, costs etc. 
  2. Who generally participates in this sport?
  3. What are the risks of this sport, major and minor.
  4. What are the rewards of this sport? 
In addition to the Forbes article you may also include information from other reliable sources. 
I will be sending you to a new group after 10 minutes so work efficiently. 

Also, if you are young, Latino and interested in journalism check out this summer program.
