Title: GO GREEN! New Year's Resolutions Worksheet

Description: This is a very simple resource on its own. It can be used as a quick activity or as part of a bigger lesson plan.
For a more complete activity, you can discuss each of the "planet saving" resolutions on the list and help the students to learn more about each issue by using other resources that we have available in this "Go Green!" section.
Another idea is to pick one (or more) of the resolutions and try to apply the resolution to the classroom. The whole class can come up with ideas on how to implement the resolution and even teach students in other classes how to do the same.
The students can also use the three resolutions they have chosen to write a fully detailed pledge. Once the pledge is written, it can be decorated and posted on a display board.

Go Green! Say NO to bottled water! PROJECT BASED

Title: GO GREEN! - Say NO to bottled water!


Description: This GO GREEN! kit contains many activities and ideas
about an issue that all students can experience directly.

Bottled water is not the biggest environmental issue around but it is one that affects the local community and one which we can impact quite easily.

The theme is "Let's Take Action!"


Most schools do not include environmental education in their curriculum; however, this type of education is a great motivator for students in an EFL/ESL setting. By establishing an environmental activist role for your students, these worksheets provide unique language learning opportunities. Your students will readily risk new language production because they can make a direct impact on their community.

The recommended age group for these activities is 9-12 and a beginner/intermediate English language level. You can modify the activities for other ages/language levels.

Because each activity may take up to several lessons to complete, you should use a project based approach. You must create a set of lesson plans for each activity. You may also need to provide supplementary resources and materials depending on the age and language level of your students.
