Science Week: ‘The Biggest Footprint,’ by Rob & Tom Sears.

With themes of conservation, carbon footprints, and the future of our planet, this book makes good use of mind-boggling facts and smoosh theory to explore the problems humans have created for the Earth’s future

Meet the mega human: colossal, clueless . . . and the biggest hope for life on earth

There are eight billion of us humans.

All breathing, eating, fidgeting and thinking deep thoughts.

It’s an unimaginably large number. Or is it? 

The mega human is the result of smooshing all the people in the world together into one spectacular giant (don’t try this at home). Even though the mega human is not the smartest of creatures, it is slowly beginning to understand the problems it has created for Planet Earth’s future . . . and how it might be able to fix them.

This is such an interesting read. It certainly got me thinking about what actions I can take to help play my part in n reversing some of the damage humans have done to our planet.

‘The Biggest Footprint’ will certainly open up a lot of interesting conversations with children aged 9+ and lends itself well to lots of project work, science, and maths!
