Do You Really Need It?

Completed

Description

We watched a video on needs and wants together as a group and talked about the difference of needing and wanting things. After we completed a work sheet where we had to choose items that we needed or wanted. Each child did it individually with assistance from the educators. Our class decided that having a computer was a want, but a child in our class uses an ipad for talking and therefore we decided that he needs a computer in his life. We talked about how some people have different wants and needs in their lives.

One Hour No Power

Completed

Description

We turned the power off for at least an hour for the days at school. At lunch we usually use the smartboard to watch a video, so instead we turned the lights and all technology off for those hours. We also challenge our families to do an hour without power and home and tell us what they did for that hour.
