Using a series of multiple-choice questions, this site attempts to determine a person's 'ecological footprint'—i.e. how much impact a person has on the environment. Of course, questions about how many miles per gallon does your motorbike get may not apply to most students. However, if the class develops a series of imaginary characters and 'plugs in' the data for them the result could spark some very interesting discussions about people and their ecological impact. Be sure to warn your students against providing their Email address even though the site asks for one.
