Product Description
This mini-lesson is all about raising awareness of the environmental harm done by idling one's vehicle. A printable sheet is included with information on gas consumption and harmful emissions as a result of vehicle idling.

The associated math project involves:
:: collecting data on vehicles that idle and vehicles turned off outside of the school (authentic data brings the point home)
:: computing daily totals and percentages
:: finding averages and analyzing the data
:: constructing a double bar graph and a circle (pie) graph

Perfect for Earth Day, this lesson is pertinent any day of the year!
