Students complete a survey about their daily lives to determine how much of the earths resources he/she is using. Using this survey they can determine if everyone on earth used as much resources as he / she did how many earths would it take to sustain all the people on earth.
Students will conduct his /her own research in class about a renewable energy of his / her choosing. Students will record information from the internet and also keep track of his /her references to add to their final copy of their poster.
