Catherine Walton_compass


In this lesson, students think about the sustainability of importing to Germany by shipping. Students use the Sustainability Compass tool to help them process their thinking and come up with some alternative ideas of energy production to move items across the water. Then students work in the makerspace to build a model of their ideas. Finally, students will draw out a mental model tracing the forms of energy through their system.
