Step 1: To get started on the Lexus Eco Challenge, download the Challenge worksheets to help your students work as a team to brainstorm, plan, and create an Action Plan that can be submitted to the contest.
Please note that teachers must register their teams for the Lexus Eco Challenge and that teams must use the Action Plan template for their submissions. The worksheets are only meant to guide teams in developing their entries.
Step 2: Distribute copies of the four worksheets to students:
Choosing the Right Topic Teams can use this sheet to brainstorm environmental issues that affect their community and select one to address.
Planning and Teamwork This worksheet can help teams map out what they want to accomplish and how to get there. Who’s doing what to create the Action Plan that the team will submit as their Challenge entry?
Creating an Action Plan This page includes tips for students to consider as they work on their plan to address the selected environmental issue, implement it, gather results, and develop their Challenge entry. For example, how will the team measure success? How will they raise community awareness about the issue and the team’s actions to address it?
Beyond the Action Plan This page features ideas to help teams showcase their work and the community’s reaction, including creating websites, videos, and press releases. Community outreach and social sharing should be done under the supervision of the teacher advisor(s).
