Travel Trees are a good way for younger pupils to visualise how they travel to school.
At the end of the week/month children will be able to see how healthy their journeys to school are. The greener the tree, the better.
Why not introduce travel green days to your school? These can be set days in a school term when pupils and teachers travel to school in the most environmentally friendly way possible.
If it works, try having a Green day every week. Remember that travel need not be the only green project promoted.
Using fossil fuels such as oil and petrol leads to the emission of carbon dioxide. See how well you score. Have a look at the Education Scotland website.
Keep a diary of all the journeys that you make and how you make them for one week. Then try to increase the number of journeys that you make on foot during the next week. You might be surprised by how much more you can do for very little effort.
You might like to try using a pedometer. A pedometer records the number of paces that you take whilst wearing it.
