This web site is easy to use and informative about the various elements that go into the carbon footprint. Some questions that go into the "footprint" calculation are easy (how many miles do you drive your car per year and what is its gas mileage), but others are harder to answer accurately (what is your average monthly expenditure for fruits and vegetables). One also might wonder how accurate some of the correlations are. For example, the amount spent on water/sewage depends on usage, but also very heavily on the local utility rates. Despite those quibbles, the net result comparing one's carbon footprint to the rest of the US and the world should be illuminating to students interested in global warming and greenhouse gases.
