This is a project-based lesson plan on conducting a school energy audit that entails collecting data and researching facts. After gathering data, giving teacher surveys, and conducting interviews, students decided on how they would get teachers to better conserve energy and paper.The result is the production of a video to be shown to teachers. There was a food waste component, but students thought the audience would be students, and not teachers, and thus continue to think about this issue and its possible resolution.
This lesson is meant to be fluid and thus may alter some in your teaching of this lesson plan. The more students can guide this work the better.
