Anthropocene: Human’s Impact on Earth’s Geology

Anthropocene is an upcoming term meaning the period during which human activity has been the dominant influence on climate and the environment. We want our students to be aware and knowledgeable of the affect that we are having on the earth’s geology and ecosystems. After showing our classes some of the short clips provided by the Anthropocene Project, we want to encourage students to brainstorm solutions and ideas to combat this global issue and create a brighter future. It’s important to create awareness of this topic in the younger generation, but it is also important that they know they can do something about it as well. It will be interesting to see the ideas they come up with and what innovations they create. We will combine this with earth and environmental inspired projects and activities in honor of the upcoming earth and arbor days.
