Electricity

Energy Use: CAR VS BIKE

Read the blog post linked below. What do you propose we do as a more energy efficient form of transportation? Ride a bike? Bike-car combo? Change the design of a car? Ride a sphero?

Explore My Area

Sometimes protecting nature requires feeling connected to nature. I will invest 200 minutes in exploring and appreciating a natural area in my region, whether a forest, wetland, coastal area, or somewhere else.

Stop over chemical reacting!!: Intro to the Carbon Cycle

Climate change is occurring because of a phenomenon that is also a very basic chemical reaction. When fossil fuels burn, carbon dioxide is produced. Usually, this reaction balances out as carbon dioxide is then used during photosynthesis. However, the amount of carbon being produced currently, due to our overuse of fossil fuels, is tipping this delicate balance. We'll talk more about the effects later on...in the meantime let's learn about how to reduce the ways WE start chemical reactions that create carbon. Use the link below to measure your carbon footprint.

    We should ride bikes a lot more to conserve energy, but a car design change could work so it doesn't consume a lot of energy, but a sphero would be fun if it was big enough.

    What inspiration and wisdom can you gather from your family, faith, or community traditions that would help you in both communicating about and addressing our most pressing energy issues?

    I would talk about how fossil fuels are causing climate change.
  • Reflection Question
    Land Sinks Research Peatlands
    Much of Indonesia's peatlands have been drained so they could be replaced with palm oil or pulp and paper plantations. How can you make choices that help to protect peatlands, even if you live far away from one?

    I would water them more and they need water to survive

    I should look around more outside, and just look at my surroundings.
