The Greenest Museum On Earth Student's Sheet

  1. 1. Student’s Sheet THE GREENEST MUSEUM ON EARTH CALIFORNIA ACADEMY OF SCIENCES PRE-VIEWING This video is about the building of the greenest museum in the world. It talks about sustainable architecture. In groups of five, answer these questions: 1. What kind of museum do you think it is? ( ) arts ( ) natural history ( ) collection 2. What do you think makes the museum green? WHILE-VIEWING Check the aspects which make this museum green: ( ) reduction of energy consumption ( ) plumbing installations that harvest rain water ( ) solar panels ( ) gray water systems to recycle waste water ( ) recycled steel ( ) lumber harvested from sustainable-yield forests ( ) recycled denim insulation ( ) wood for cabinets comes from a local park ( ) Solar powered elevators ( ) The public environment is naturally cooled
  2. 2. POST-VIEWING In pairs, think about the two places where you probably spend most of your time: home, working place, for example. What aspects of these places could conceivably - without overwhelming investment or inconvenience – be made more “green”? Discuss these “green” living and/or work-place alternatives and share your list with the whole group.
