How Big Are Your Carbon Feet?

Completed

Description

We discussed what carbon footprints are (using some videos), reviewed how energy is used in our daily lives, and completed a Carbon Footprint online calculator (Global Footprint Network - carbon calculator). We reflected on our own use of fossil fuels and how to reduce our own footprint by using the detailed breakdown in the online calculator results page. We consolidated our learning by completing the footprint diagram, inserting what we can do (both personally and societally) to reduce our carbon footprint.

The Phantom of the Classroom

Completed

Description

We learned about phantom power using your recommended videos, and determined our phantom power use using the Hydro Quebec calculator. We identified phantom power use in the classroom prior to our Earth Hour event. We ensured as many phantom power devices were turned off in the classroom during our Earth Hour. Following that, we created maps to identify phantom power use in our homes to ensure that we could turn all of them off for International Earth Hour.
