In the project the students will identify their individual carbon footprint. Then research ways to reduce their footprint. Part of the research will be about zero-net energy houses and energy efficiency. The students will design a 2-D floor plan of their house and then construct a 3-D model. This activity is great for a culminating project for an environmental studies class. This project will take about 3 to 4 weeks if you allow class time for the students to work on their models. Both PDF and editable Word documents included.
