Students examine their ecological footprint by listing all their activities and the natural resources that support those activities.
Students survey the natural systems that we impact through daily living and discuss the processes that lead to degradation and improvement of each.
Students research careers and create a “day in the life” video to describe each.
Every human activity uses and impacts the natural resources of the Earth: soil, water and air. Agriculture is blamed for many negative impacts, but there are many things growers do to prevent those negative impacts. Consumers, too have many negative impacts on the Earth and its systems. This set of lessons attempts to investigate some impacts and discover ways those negative impacts can be lessened.
