Should We Invest In Our Climate?

Help me give my students chromebooks to research the financial impact on our climate.

My Students

I'm hoping to inspire my students with technology and connect it to mathematics. We'll take on blogging, Twitter, video editing, 3D printing, Skype, and much, much more! My Fourth grade students come from a variety of backgrounds; 50 percent of my students live in high poverty areas, and about 15 percent of them are English Language Learners from South Africa, Vietnam, Nigeria, Bhutan, and other countries.

Our school is a K-5 Vermont school that loves embracing STEM activities.

We put tools into the hands of students to keep them energized. My students are an energetic and inspired group of learners who love utilizing technology.

My Project

As part of the fourth grade curriculum we teach about how the climate is changing and how renewable resources are becoming more viable. Students are always interested in how much solar panels actually cost and how much electricity they actually produce. I want to include a financial piece in my next set of energy reports abouts about the cost of ignoring our climate.

Climate change is going to directly affect my students lives and they need to be aware of the financial impact that it could have.

Having a chromebook will give them the chance to research actually costs of windmills, hydro dams, bio fuels, and solar panels. We want them to realize the financial incentive to switching to renewable resources and compare it to something similar like a carbon tax.
