REDUCING YOUR COMMUNITY'S CARBON FOOTPRINT GRADES 5-8
Encourage students to make a difference on a larger scale by examining their community's carbon footprint. With the rise of global temperature, polar ice caps are melting, resulting in the possibility of low-lying islands disappearing under the ocean. Students will learn about other causes and effects of global climate change on communities and habitats. Using our resource, students will examine their community's transportation and food footprint, the heat island effect, alternative energy — including how to use trash to generate electricity— and examples of carbon neutral communities. Our resource is equipped with a carbon footprint calculator, designed specifically to calculate your community's carbon footprint and ways to make that footprint smaller. Reading passages, comprehension questions, crossword puzzle, word search, and overheads are also included.
