Request projects here. Upon request you will be sent a 16-unit series of project-based learning activities about climate protection and reducing energy use for 4th and 5th grade elementary school teachers.
Students will identify their level of knowledge about energy issues and calculate the CO2 emissions caused by their lifestyles. They will then formulate a plan to reduce and/or counteract their emissions. Class discussion follows on issues involved with energy use in the United States and other countries and our role in climate change.
A new plan proposed by the Environmental Protection Agency will cut carbon pollution from existing power plants 30 percent by the year 2030, helping to leave a safer, cleaner planet behind for future generations.
