This workshop introduces activities on the theme of Sustainability. The effect of carbon dioxide on our oceans is highlighted and an activity suitable for the school science lab and geography classroom will be outlined. Activities calculating the effect our food choices have on our carbon footprint will be explored. Ways of representing this data to students will be discussed.
The workshop is suitable for Junior Cycle teachers, student teachers, and PMEs as it is aligned with the different junior cycle specifications and provides ideas for teaching these concepts in the classroom.
