Regenerative Agriculture -- A Solution to Climate Change

Regenerative Agriculture -- A Solution to Climate Change

This video guide goes along with the Ted Talk Regenerative agriculture -- a solution to climate change by Ben Dobson. This video makes light of the world's carbon emissions problem and offers a solution to offset the devastating environmental destruction due to current agricultural methods. The video guide is 3 pages long in PDF format. It includes previewing, during viewing and post viewing questions for students and directions. The video link is hyperlinked in the main heading for quick access. This lesson would take about 25 minutes if you view the video only once and 35 minutes if you show it twice, which is what I like to do. "What if we could reverse global warming with just one methodological shift? Can the way we farm radically impact not just our output but also overwhelming wide-ranging concerns for our environment, hunger, and poverty? Ben Dobson has a unique, personal perspective on how we can make universal changes." *****Please Follow Me for New Product Updates**************** I'm also grateful for feedback.

COWSPIRACY - The Sustainability Secret

COWSPIRACY - The Sustainability Secret

This video guide goes along with the condensed version of Cowspiracy. This shorter version is only 15 minutes long and includes all the major highlights. It is much better in a classroom setting. The video makes light of the ever increasing amount of greenhouse gases, the affects on climate change and the almost unknown major cause of environmental destruction, animal agriculture. The video guide is 3 pages long in PDF format. It includes previewing, during viewing and post viewing questions for students and directions. The video link is hyperlinked in the main heading for quick access. This lesson would take about 45 minutes if you view the video only once and 1 hour if you show it twice, which is what I like to do. "Animal agriculture is the leading cause of deforestation, water consumption and pollution, is responsible for more greenhouse gases than the transportation industry, and is a primary driver of rain forest destruction, species extinction, habitat loss, topsoil erosion, ocean “dead zones,” and virtually every other environmental ill. Yet it goes on, almost entirely unchallenged."

The Impact of Global Meat Production- Article and Worksheet

The Impact of Global Meat Production- Article and Worksheet

"The Triple Whopper Environmental Impact of Global Meat Production Livestock production may have a bigger impact on the planet than anything else. A new study shows how the effects vary from country to country — and points the way toward a more sustainable future." Have students learn about this important topic by reading a 3 page article (included in PDF format) and completing the accompanying worksheet with a partner or small group. Afterwards you can reflect on the article as a class. The file is in PDF, Word and a fillable Word form. This way you can print the handout for students to write on or share it for them to easily fill out on their devices as a Word form. Should take about 25-30 minutes This article pairs well with the following other resources of mine: 1. COWSPIRACY - The Sustainability Secret 2. Regenerative Agriculture -- A Solution to Climate Change Thanks for looking! Follow me for product additions.
