In this easy to implement project, your Environmental Science students get a chance to apply their knowledge and demonstrate their learning. Students will create their own eco-friendly home, as they choose a location for the home, research climate data, decide on the size of the house, and then determine how they will meet their needs (heat, cooling, electricity, water, waste removal). This project has accompanying checkpoints and data collection sheets, so it would easily be broken up to use a part of it only, or different parts throughout the unit.
You can, of course, restrict their choices or limit some parts to change the scope of this project. Students can work on the project at home (independently), in class, or pieces of both. As a great extension, students can create a model/drawing/diorama of their home, or create a presentation to share with the class. Students have a lot of choices, and really enjoy this project, which is easily adapted to fit your needs.
