Description

Encourage students to make a difference on a larger scale by examining their community's carbon footprint. Our resource illustrates the causes and effects of global climate change on communities and habitats. Identify the cause and effect events between a commuter driving to work and a distant island becoming smaller. Explore the evolution of living in cities to moving to the suburbs and how this affected a community's travel footprint. Find out how Cuba transformed their farming system to one that uses no fossil fuels in just 10 years. Learn about the heat island effect caused by cities, and how this changes the local climate. Brainstorm what recycled items will become in their next life. Get inspired by reading about some green towns and cities all over the world. Explore ways in which you can help your community see a green future. Written to Bloom's Taxonomy and STEAM initiatives, additional graphic organizers, carbon footprint calculator, crossword, word search, comprehension quiz and answer key are also included.
