This lesson introduces students to green building practices and their benefits. Students collaborate to design their own green building, conduct an energy audit of their school and use the resulting data to suggest ways to improve the school's energy efficiency and reduce its carbon output.
In this lesson developed by the University of Colorado at Boulder, students learn about the different climatic regions and the factors that determine climate. They also explore how engineers enable humans to adapt to living in most environments by designing buildings, water systems and other technologies.
In this hands-on and inquiry-based unit, students are challenged to design and build a water filtration device using commonly available materials. Students must test and measure the performance of their device and analyze the data collected, mirroring the process used by scientists and engineers at NASA.
In this activity, students are given different scenarios about the water needs of communities and families. Using the engineering design process, they develop methods for utilizing and cleaning water sources.
Developed by Water Partners International, this set of lesson plans and activities cover a broad scope of subjects including English, science and technology as well as social sciences like geography, civics and economics.
Students design, create, and install a lasting piece of the school garden. Through creating a pond habitat high school students are challenged to build a sustainable ecosystem from start to finish. The lesson includes instructions for installation and information regarding the many forms of life found in a pond habitat and their relationship to one another.
