A game with flashcards that contain the carbon emissions (in gCO2e) of different foods. This game has been developed by GGDOT with Take A Bite Out Of Climate Change. A picture of the food item is on each card with the following categories:
There are no fixed rules for the game and students can make up their own rules or borrow rules from other games. Users can download the food flashcards and print them for use in the classroom.
Students will be introduced to carbon emissions of different food types such as bread, butter, porridge, coffee, milk, eggs, pizza, lamb, stek, fish, vegetables and others. They will further be able to understand the different nutritional values of common food items.
Use this tool to help your students find answers to:
- What is the carbon footprint of sausages, lamb, steak, fish, different vegetables?
- Discuss which food types are healthy and have low carbon footprints.
