Today we will be doing an experiment to practice the scientific process and experimental design. It is not graded but will be important practice for when students design their own experiment and are graded on it.
We are going to be creating sustainability plans. Kids will be doing a carbon footprint research study at home. They will use this data to create a sustainability plan to save money in your home. Don't be surprised if they present it to you and ask for a commission on the cost savings! Know that I have told them I support your decision to implement this plan or not implement it as well as your choice of whether or not to compensate them for their design and management of the plan. You are their parent and your word is final!
