COMMON CORE
This project is a place-based look into energy conservation, renewable and non-renewable resources, and science process skills. It also includes the authentic and meaningful evaluation, interpretation, and communication of data.

Overview:

The overall strategy for this unit pertaining to a place-based, inquiry-based experience is to obtain information from food labels at the local grocery store, measure the distance each food travels in a consistent manner, translate the information to graphs and maps, and discuss the impact of non-local foods on energy conservation and non-renewable resource reserves with an emphasis on fossil fuels.
