A computer-based game that shows the carbon footprints of different types of food. The objective of the game is to click on images of different foods – for example, cheese, banana and steak – from lowest to highest carbon footprint before the 30-second timer runs out. The clock is paused each time an answer is submitted to show whether players answered correctly. At the end of the game, a tally is provided of right and wrong answers.
Students will be introduced to the carbon footprints of different foods. Before they begin the game, students may take a moment to read descriptions of carbon footprints of different foods that are provided in the form of a slideshow at the bottom of the screen.
Use this tool to help your students find answers to:
- What is the carbon footprint of different foods?
- How have anthropogenic emissions impacted Earth’s climate change?
- Discuss why animal-based products generally have greater carbon footprints.
