Sustainable living for yourself Cover
This delightful lesson plan contains a learning outcome, success criteria, pre-lesson preparation, resources, learning sequences and a conclusion. Students will gain an awareness of how living sustainably affects them. After an introductory exercise students will explore sustainable consumption of food by tracking the physical distance each item in their lunchbox has travelled to reach them. The teacher then leads a discussion on the benefits of "keeping it local" and keeping waste at zero. The final task of the lesson involves an outdoor class activity, concluding with time for students to fill in their learning log and reflect on the lesson.
