Do You Really Need It?

Completed

Description

Our class talked about the energy consuming items that we use daily. Students made lists on their mini whiteboards. They then circled those that they decided fit more into the 'want' category than the 'privilege' category. We talked about the items that we can go without. Our class decided to give up lights, computers, ipads and our smartboard for a whole day. They also pledged to give up one item at home for a whole day. Those varied from ipads to tvs to phones.
