Carbon Footprint Discussion
CLICK HERE to go to the web page where you will find a handout (optional) that requires students to do some thinking before discussing the diagram in class. I have students write answers on the handout as a homework assignment. The next day, I use the questions to guide our classroom discussion, randomly calling on students for their responses. It is an effective way to get students to think about how their lifestyles are related to carbon dioxide emissions. The diagram (called a "Mind Map") was provided by www.live-the-solution.com.
