Activity Overview


There are many ways we can work to reduce the effect we have on the environment. Get your students to think of different ways they can reduce their carbon footprint and reduce their impact on global warming. In this activity, they'll create a T Chart that proposes alternative activities to things they (or others) do in their lives.

The suggested activities in this assignment are driving to work, turning your heating up too high, throwing a soda can in the trash, and taking short flights. You can change these easily to anything you want or even let your students decide on the activities. Make this more challenging for students by giving them a theme for their activities. For example, ask your students to think of ways to be greener in school. Alternatively, have your students research what activities release the largest amount of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere and then think of greener alternatives for those activities.

This activity could provide a great stimulus for a class discussion on what your students can do to reduce their carbon footprint and reduce their contribution to global warming.
