ECO House !!

Each pair of students were given a set of coloured picture cards in which to choose the best energy efficient choices for their house. The object of the exercise was to get the Lowest score, not the Highest, with points awarded at the end to each choice, based on the least impact to our environment. Questions were asked like:

Which way is the best direction to face my house ?  What sort of heating is the best ?  What shape house is the most energy efficient ? Do plants and trees make a difference outside the house for my energy bills ?

A good way to get discussions happening and group involvement, and maybe just get the next generation thinking…!
