Introduction to Classroom Activities
The C3 Challenge includes a collection of classroom activities for grade levels K-5, 6-8, and 9-12 designed to support the promotion of the C3 Challenge at your school and educate students in a variety of ways. Lessons focus on the relationship between energy use, transportation, waste, electricity, and global climate change. Each activity is aligned with the Next Generation Sunshine State Standards. Additional activities can be found in the Character Education Science FCAT Warm-Up Newsletters at Broward County's Environmental Kids Club website.
Conduct an Audit
Now that your Conservation and C3 Challenge team assembled and ready to start reducing emissions at your school, the next step is to conduct an audit to identify possible sources of greenhouse gas emissions or wasteful habits that can be changed to help reduce the school’s carbon footprint. You’ll begin by checking off actions or measures that have been taken to be more efficient in relation to the classroom electricity use, waste generation and recycling, transportation, and water conservation. You’ll then use the Classroom Audit Checklist to identify possible inefficiencies in the classroom and around the school that can be corrected to reduce your classroom’s and school’s carbon footprint. The information gathered in the audits will be used to help identify which actions would be most beneficial to your classroom/school as you pledge to take part in the C3 Challenge Teacher Pledge.
