Authentic Project Ideas – Gas Fire Pits/Fireplaces

Driving Question Number One: Why is it so difficult to photograph a flame?  Do I need a better camera?  New phone?  It took me at least 20 shots just to capture this photograph, and the flames were so much bigger and more impressive than in the photo.

Driving Question Number Two: Are gas fire pits/fireplaces good for the environment?  Are they better/worse than burning wood?  Do they cause any pollution? How economical are they?  How do they work?  There are so many questions you can ask using this picture as inspiration.
