Activities

Back to the Future by GreenLearning. Grades 4-7. http://www.greenlearning.ca/eneraction/teacher-materials. Students explore how the movement of goods has changed over time. They examine different means of transporting freight, which makes up 46% of transportation emissions in Canada. Students take on the task of historically sorting a set of Moving Goods Cards. In analyzing the cards, they also consider speed and pollution to weigh the sustainability of different modes of transportation. After working with the Moving Goods Cards, students also examine one of three case studies to identify transportation solutions and then create their own ideas for transporting goods. They reflect on options for the future and consider how decisions today impact the future.
