Global Impact Project
In this project, students use measurement, data, and fraction concepts to develop, implement, and monitor an action plan for reducing their impact on the environment. Each student focuses on one resource of their choice: (ex: water, garbage, food waste,etc.) Teams research information such as the amount of water per minute of a shower or the amount of single use plastic they consume each day. Data is tracked for two weeks then students learn to graph their data on an appropriate graph. This data will be the springboard for the remainder of the project.
