The purpose of this activity is to encourage a dialogue between visitors and educators around environmentally friendly actions. The activity helps the visitor find the connections between their lives and their carbon footprint. This activity is designed for adults, families, or kids ages 9 and up with their families. Younger children can help place the blocks, but will probably not be active participants in the discussion.
How to use these materials:
Start by opening the document titled ‘guide to ecofootprint.’ There you will find basic information, a description of all the files, and other resources you need to assemble the activities.
