Do You Really Need It?

Completed

Description

The Volts had a class discussion about the difference between needs and once. We then brainstormed all the items we use in our daily lives that require energy. From the list, we sorted them by needs/wants. Students then choose one item from their want list and committed to giving it up for a day. Many students completed the challenge over the weekend.
