What Is My Footprint?

This What Is My Footprint? lesson plan also includes:

How do one's habits and lifestyle choices affect the environment? Through a short online survey, learners will calculate their own carbon footprints then determine how to reduce their impact on the environment through simple steps, such as reducing shower time or unplugging chargers when not in use. There are several ecological footprint calculators available online, so if the one linked to here is not developmentally appropriate for your kids, a quick Internet search should help you find a calculator that works for your class(es). The instructional activity ends by encouraging your eager ecologists to have their families take the survey and discuss how the whole family can reduce overall carbon emissions.
