    Cep 416 Lesson Plan Cep 416 Lesson Plan Presentation Transcript

      • Our Goals for the day...
      • Understand the importance of sustainability.
      • Use an online calculator to find out our individual carbon footprints.
      • Make appropriate personal choices in order to be more sustainable in our everyday lives.
      • Create a Prezi presentation describing your plan of action to become more earth-friendly.
    • What is Sustainability?
      • Changing our way of living in order to improve the future.
        • “ Making the world a better place”
        • “ Being nice to all your neighbors, including trees”
        • “ Taking care of the air, water, and land”
    • The 5 Main Sections of Sustainability
      • Electricity
      • Food/Drink
      • Water Use
      • Transportation
      • Nature/Environment
    • Electricity
      • Things that are plugged in, such as the television, require electricity
      • The more electricity we use, the more we are hurting the earth
    • Food and Drink
      • Foods that are processed and have lots of packaging, such as hot dogs, are less earth-friendly than fruits and vegetables
      • We can become more sustainable by eating healthy, natural foods.
    • Water Use
      • We use water to do many things, such as wash dishes, do laundry, go swimming, and shower.
      • Each time we use water, we are reducing the water that the earth has.
    • Transportation
      • We use transportation, like cars, bikes, buses, trains, airplanes, to get from place to place.
      • The more we can get around by not using cars, the more sustainable we will be.
    • Nature/Environment
      • Many plants and animals are working hard to keep our earth healthy and clean
      • It is up to us to not destroy trees, plants, and habitats.
    • What is a Carbon Footprint?
      • The more you do things that use up resources (such as take long showers, drive in a car, keep the sink running, and keep the lights turned on) the more Carbon Dioxide you use and the higher your carbon footprint will be.
      • We want to have LOW Carbon Footprints to help keep our earth healthy.

    • Brainstorming…
      • What did your results mean to you?
      • What can you do to DECREASE your carbon footprint?
    • Assignment
      • Make a short presentation of things YOU can do in your daily life to decrease your carbon footprint and become more sustainable
      • Use what we already know about Prezi to complete this assignment
