  • Allow students time in their teams to share information they researched for homework and recorded on the Sustainability Topics Worksheet (from Lesson 3-2.)
  • Have students make the case to each other that each issue they researched is a sustainability issue.
  • Have each team choose a few issues from their discussion to add to the class list of sustainability issues from yesterday.
  1. Have a class-wide discussion on how we know these issues are related to sustainability. How does this issue impact the environment, economics, and social equity?
  2. The issues your students come up with may be broad. Encourage students to break down these issues as much as possible.
  3. Have each team choose one issue that interests them most. Be sure to ask each team why they chose that topic. Be sure to articulate how important it is to choose a topic that each team member is interested in.
