The students read articles and researched about Eco-Friendly buildings. We discussed how to make a building more eco friendly and talked about ways to save energy. Students then designed a "green school," incorporating some ideas. Some common themes students came up with were the use of solar panels, edible gardens, large windows to let in natural light (and therefore use less electricity), and donating left over lunch food to homeless shelters. After drawing out their designs, students built their ideas into life.
