Calculating Your Carbon Footprint

CLASS 5 HOMEWORK – March 21st 

Calculating your family’s CARBON FOOTPRINT

 As part of our Geography and environmental studies, we are trying to find ways to make our school a greener and more eco-friendly place.

What is a carbon footprint?

Your carbon footprint is the amount of carbon dioxide released into the environment as a result of your activities. This includes the transport you use, the food you eat, the energy you use and other things.

CALCULATE YOUR CARBON FOOTPRINT BY CLICKING ON THE WEBSITE LINK below. You will need to have help from a parent to do this. Check first if they mind being involved in this investigation! If you can, try and save your results and bring them into school, so we can all compare. I’ll even do mine!
