Do You Really Need It?
As a class we discussed items that use energy and then narrowed down our list to what we need vs. what we want. Afterward, each student filled out the sheet and decided on one item they would 'give up' over the family day long weekend. Tuesday, when we returned to school, everyone shared their experience. To complete the activity, they wrote on the back of the sheet about their experience and if it was positive or negative and why they thought that.
How Big Are Your Carbon Feet?
We calculated our carbon footprint using the provided calculator then had a discussion on how many worlds we would all need. Afterward, each student recorded their worlds and then ideas on how to reduce their own carbon footprint. Many had also said they wanted to discuss this with their families and see if there were any ways at home they could work together to improve their overall impact on the earth.
