Chicago, IL // Spring 2021

The 3rd grade class at Bennett Day School was interested in learning how they could calculate their carbon footprint. Their Green Schools Mentor and the Leopardo Beyond Green Committee worked alongside the educator to generate ideas and teaching concepts to engage students in hands-on sustainability activities to help students understand their impact on the environment. These ideas were shared with the educator to be implemented virtually or with a facilitator from the Committee.

Project type: Carbon footprint


The educator and Green Schools Mentor directly participated in the project, which will benefit the third grade class.
