Personal Conservation Commitment (1 hour) > Print/View All Notes
In this activity, students will create their personal conservation plan, recalculate their carbon footprint based on their plan, and compare their modified carbon output with their original output by creating a bar graph. Before students begin, ask them to turn to page 6 of their Engineering Portfolios. Review the parts of a bar graph, if necessary. If students prefer to create their bar graphs offline, direct them to the grid paper on page 7 of the Engineering Portfolio. You may also wish to have your students discuss the "More to Explore" resource and their answers to the related questions.
