Product Details

How big is your “carbon footprint”? The term is so widely used by the media and the general public that its scientific meaning is often blurred. A carbon footprint is a numerical value that summarizes the amount of carbon dioxide or equivalent greenhouse gas released by energy-dependent activities and processes. In this activity, students will analyze personal data from utility bills, modes of transportation, and everyday activity contributions. The relative contributions of different activities will be graphed to explore meaningful ways to reduce emissions and their carbon footprint. A great integrated science and math activity for all students! This completely reusable kit includes detailed background information and procedures as well as reproducible student worksheets and complete teacher’s notes.
