Guiding Thought Question: What are steps that you can take while traveling to be an ecologically friendly traveler? List three - and then explain the importance of one of them.
Central Question: Why is it important to be ecologically minded, even when traveling?
Today's Learning Objective: Students will learn about the benefits of eco-tourism by planning a trip to a destination of their place, and then figuring out what they can potentially learn from it. Students will work through the planning phases, including costs, impacts, ecological and humanitarian needs affecting the area, and how their experience might help them. They will compile this into a tour which they can share with other students and teach about a different part of the world.
