In this lesson, students conduct research on electric bicycles and electric cars, choose one of these technologies, and create a video promoting its use as a climate solution.
Step 1 - Inquire: Students view a series of images related to bicycles and cars and discuss their emotional reactions with a partner.
Step 2 - Investigate: Students investigate the benefits and drawbacks of electric bicycles and electric cars.
Step 3 - Inspire: Students create a video advertisement advocating for electric bicycles or electric cars.
Over the course of their use, electric cars are far more environmentally friendly than conventional automobiles. This lesson examines those benefits as well as how to make cities friendlier to bikes and other commuting options. The external resources in this lesson have passed our scientific review process.
