This week, our students explored steps they can take to solve the problem of climate change.  Students engaged in action research as they investigated a real problem in our district.  Students used Kill-A-Watt readers to register the amount of energy a computer, whiteboard projector, monitor, and charging cart uses.  Students then put together a report that they will share with leaders in our district in an effort to reduce the amount of energy we use.  Our class had the amazing opportunity to Skype with Ken Surritte, the founder of Water is Life.  Ken shared with us the many impacts climate change has on water in the world.  He also explored the idea of water quality and gave our students some practical ways that they can reduce climate change.  This was an engaging and exciting week full of research, connections, and video making!  Please check out our other group's video along with all of our content for this project by visiting our website: NWMS Climate Action Project
