This new 4-H Ag Innovators Experience, Curbing Our Carbon Appetite, is brought to you by National 4-H Council, University of Maryland Extension 4-H, and Bayer. Curbing our Carbon Appetite will help youth ages 10-18 learn the importance of taking actions that can reduce the atmospheric carbon.
The objectives of this activity kit include:
Trace the flow of carbon through the carbon cycle and relate human activity to increased atmospheric carbon.
Model the effects of changing atmospheric carbon levels on temperature
Analyze the carbon footprints of foods and plan a low-carbon lunch
Explore actions that agriculture, business and industry, and individuals and families can take to reduce the atmospheric carbon.
