Fern Bacon students learn about ‘Human Impact on Earth’

e-Connections Post Fern Bacon

Fern Bacon Middle School students will be starting a new science unit called “Human Impact on Earth.”

Students will be participating in a major project on campus where they will be sorting out all of the waste that is produced during one day at the campus into categories of paper, compostable material, bottles and cans and trash.

From there, the students will be taking action to make Fern Bacon a more sustainable and healthy place to learn. Those actions could be letters to district and city officials about increasing recycling options on campus and along Wesley Avenue.

The unit will require research and a student presentation on other ways that humans impact earth such as: Deforestation, greenhouse effects, global warming, water pollution and oil spills.
