This 5 week unit is designed to help teach students about the many impacts humans have had on our environment.

REDUCING OUR IMPACT ON THE EARTH
This unit is a follow-up to my best-selling unit "Human Impact on the Environment." This unit of work goes for a further 5 week or 25 lessons and now looks at what we can do to REDUCE our impact and help improve our environment and our lives.
This unit includes:
**Unit planner (this includes a suggested order of lessons and activities, but feel free to use these resources whatever way you like!)
**Detailed Lesson Plans (targeted at specific skills or content)
**Printable Worksheets at 2 differentiated levels
**Teacher Answers to Worksheets
**Persuasive writing lessons
**Assessment tasks and rubrics
**All hyperlinked PDF
This unit is very versatile and I have used with students at both Year 7 and 8, though it is also differentiated to be suitable for lower literacy levels of Grade 4 upwards.
Though I am an Australian teacher and have different national standards to work towards, I believe it would cater towards the Common Core Standards listed below also (as pointed out to me by a fellow TpT'er, thankyou!):
Global Environmental Problems and Issues
EVS.912.5a Explain how resources can be preserved to reduce the impact on Earth (e.g., planting new trees after chopping down others).
EVS.912.5b Recognize that some environmental problems are global (e.g., water or air pollution, extinction, deforestation).
EVS.912.5c Recognize what makes a resource renewable or non-renewable.
EVS.912.6a Describe a change or preservation in the environment caused by people around the world (deforestation and replanting of trees).
EVS.912.6b Identify ways humans have changed the global environment (e.g., water quality, air quality, waste management).
EVS.912.6c Recognize that humans can change their environment.
