1 Ecological Footprint on Fri Jul 24, 2009 4:04 am

Here's an idea for a task for Year 8 for Global Change in Stage 4 Geography (it may also apply to other stages/courses).
Gets students to visit the site http://www.footprintnetwork.org and complete the interactive quiz to calculate their global footprint. I would suggest setting this as an assignment and getting the students to complete the questions with their parents. Then have them write up an action plan for what they could do to minimise their footprint, the likely effect on their lifestyle if they did, etc.
