I made very few modifications to this module.  Primarily I simplified – asking students to create graphs from one geographic unit (that I assigned to them) rather than two and instead I had them compare the graphs between groups instead.  I also gave them the graphs for the plants rather than have them create them on their own.  I also had them complete the final section outside of class (because we ran out of time) and briefly went over the material the next class period.
