Project in progress
What is your wish for this project?
In this project students will use their knowledge of renewable vs. nonrenewable resources to study and analyze typical daily use of both types of resources both in school and at home. My wish is that students will start to see patterns of overuse,especially of nonrenewable resources; and will get excited about developing ideas for change. I also hope they will begin to see that change can start small, and that working together, change can cause a global reaction.
How are you going to do it?
This project will get students thinking about real life issues that will have a lasting effect on themselves and the environment. I am hoping that students will then want to talk to family members, friends, and other community members, ultimately using the theme "knowledge is power" to encourage change and awareness. As a final activity, Students will design posters in groups to illustrate their positive message for change, and hope for the future.
