Use this mini-unit with your students when teaching about ecological footprints!
Students draw their own ecological footprints. I like to have students trace their feet (or foot for older children) and then color within the outline. I do this activity as a pre-post activity, first to see what students think an ecological footprint is and then to evaluate their understanding of an ecological footprint after discussions and readings.
Students also draw ways they can reduce their ecological footprint. Once again, I like to have students trace their feet!
A guided note-taking and evaluation of ecological footprints worksheet is provided. Five questions are included focusing on understanding what an ecological footprint is, evaluating ones own ecological footprint, and comparing ones ecological footprint with classmates.
You can supplement this mini-unit with numerous online ecological footprint quizzes where students can quantify their ecological footprints!
