Description

Students will be make choices based on their everyday families water and energy uses. Will they be able to sustain the earth? 

Expectations

Earth and Space Systems, Grade 2 (Air and Water in the Environment)
Air and water are a major part of the environment. Living things need air and water to survive. Changes to air and water affect living things and the environment.  Our actions affect the quality of air and water, and its ability to sustain life.
1. assess ways in which the actions of humans have an impact on the quality of air and water, and ways in which the quality of air and water has an impact on living things

Earth and Space Systems, Grade 5 (Conservation of Energy and Resources)
Energy sources are either renewable or non-renewable. Energy can neither be created nor destroyed, but it can be transformed. Choices about using energy and resources have both immediate and long-term impacts. Conservation (reducing our use of energy and resources) is one way of reducing the impacts of using energy and resources.
1. analyse the immediate and long-term effects of energy and resources use on society and the environment, and evaluate options for conserving energy and resources;
2. investigate energy transformation and conservation;
3. demonstrate an understanding of the various forms and sources of energy and the ways in which energy can be transformed and conserved.
