Uranium Mining and its Impact on Laguna Pueblo: A Study Guide for an Interdisciplinary Unit

Jamie Kneen Communications and Outreach Coordinator responsible for: strategic research, social media, and public engagement; our Africa program, environmental assessment, and uranium mining.

This study guide was developed by Philip Sittnick for the Laguna Middle School in Laguna, New Mexico. It's designed to help students in grade 7 understand the impacts of uranium mining based on the experience of their community and their families with the the Jackpile/Paguate uranium mine. It involves Science, Social Studies (New Mexico History), Language Arts, and Math, and provides background about related topics. It is presented here in the hope it will be useful to others.
