In this lesson, by applying the 5E instructional model, students will be able to calculate the environmental impact of their paper consumption and develop a plan to reduce their paper consumption.

● Materials: laptops/tablets
Also find attached the necessary resources in the Files section 
 Calculate the environmental impact of their paper consumption.
 Calculate the environmental impact of their school's paper consumption.
 Identify the root causes of the environmental impact as a result of the consumption of paper.
 Infer possible solutions for the root causes.
 Develop a plan to "go paperless".

 In this phase, students engage in activities that aim to activate their prior knowledge and inspire them to explore the world around them. Encourage them to be curious and ask meaningful questions!
 Carry a paper and ask students about its cost. After listening to students’ answers, direct them to the Engage Section of the Masked Cost of Paper module.
After students complete the Engage Section, conduct a wholeclass discussion in which you discuss students’ thoughts and the iceberg theory.
 Following is a text that may help you introduce students to the project:

This phase consists of three parts: Observation, Research, and Discussion.
In this part, students are going to explore their paper consumption. Ask students to:
 Observe the different types of paper products available in their surroundings.
 Select the ones they and their school use.
 Observe the consumed quantity.
 Record their observations on the I Explore worksheet.
II. ResearchBased Learning
In this part, students are going to explore their impact on the environment. Ask students to:
 Visit the following link to calculate the environmental impact of their and their school's paper consumption. Environmental Impact Calculator
 Follow the guidelines provided in the attached exploration worksheet.
The following is an alternative calculator of the environmental impact of recycled paper. Alternative Calculator
III. Discussion
 Group Discussion
Have students discuss the results of their research in groups.
 Class Discussion
Foster a rich wholeclass discussion about students' observations and research results.

 In this phase, students identify more linkages among the discussed concepts as they engage in a set of interactive activities. Elearning is based on discovery, play, and instant feedback.
 Ask students to engage in the ELearn section of the Masked Cost of Paper module on Tabshoura Platform. Encourage students to be autonomous learners and have them elearn autonomously on the platform.
 At the end of the ELearn phase, foster a wholeclass discussion to ensure that all the students have mastered the concepts included in the interactive activities. You may resolve one of the exercises with the whole class to emphasize a particular concept or skill

Invite students to play a game. Choose a student randomly and ask him/her to give you a common noun and explain its characteristics in 20 seconds. (Set a timer to the screen.) Then, choose another student to give a matching proper noun and explain his answer in 20 seconds.

Prepare students for individual evaluation. Provide students with a sample test (Test). It is recommended that the test be digitized on a digital platform, such as Google forms.
