We began talking about ways we get places (driving, taking the bus, walking,etc.) I introduced to my little grade 1's the fact that when we drive our cars, planes, and anything that requires gasoline fuel, it emits CO2 gasses into our environment. We talked about how the gasses make our air not clean to breathe, and is not good for living things or our world. We brainstormed ideas of ways in which people could get around, without polluting our air. We also talked about the benefit of people taking public transit (bus, subway) as 1 bus is better than 50 cars on the road. Partners worked together to make a poster for one of the brainstormed ideas. We have the posters around our school for all to see.
