Students start to think about transportation in their own communities by conducting a school parking lot survey and organizing their data, analyzing EPA fuel economy labels, and interviewing a car owner about their driving tendencies. As a final product, students make recommendations to the vehicle owner regarding future car purchases and ways to reduce their transportation footprints. Lessons also include tips and guidance for planning a school-wide event like Way to Go!, Idle-Free, or a walk to school day.
