EARTH DAY
PROJECT
EXAMPLE
5 STEPS
Step #1:
State the
Problem
Coal plants
release air
pollution
when they
make
electricity.
external image bridgeport-coal-credo-243x300.jpg
external image bridgeport-coal-credo-243x300.jpg

Step #2:
Provide Relevant
Statistics
-facts with
numbers
(minimum of 3)
1. Seven million
children in the
U.S. have
asthma and
suffer from
exposure to
air pollution.
2. Chronic
exposure to particlepollution can shortenlife by one to three years. 3. The economic benefitsof reducing soot and smog pollution are projected to reach $2trillion in 2020.
Step #3: State the Solutions
(minimum of 3)
1. Plant a shade tree to reduce
use of electricity for air
conditioning and fans
on hot days.
2. Plant a shade tree,
that loses its
leaves in the winter, to
reduce the amount of
heat necessary to heat
the house in winter.
3. Plant a shade tree
to absorb air
pollution and carbon dioxide.
Step #4 :
Create an Earth Day Poster (bumper sticker,T-shirt, etc.) with Slogan
