Do You Really Need It?

Completed

Description

We had an online class and a zoom meeting..We watched a video on needs and wants together and talked about the differences. We paused the video and talked about some peoples needs and different things. [like wheelchair, glasses]. We also did a google slide and made a list of needs and want.Then we played a game showing the students different pictures and they had to tell us if it was a want or need and why? A student brought up McDonalds. We agreed that it was a want and not a need. I explained there were other choices of food we could also have.

What’s For Lunch?

Completed

Description

We are a kindergarten online class, and set up a zoom call with our students. We asked them each to bring a snack or two for our meeting. We created a google slide with a map of the world and a map of Ontario so we could plot where everyones snacks came from. Then we discussed the carbon footprint of how far some of the foods had to travel. We discussed that during the warmer months, we can grow some of the foods here and can purchase them from farmers markets or grocery stores. But that during the winter months, if we want those same foods, we have to get them from other warmer countries. The students couldn't believe how far some of our foods came from (grapes from South Africa, fruit from Israel and Mexico) We also read a story by Dr. Seuss called Green Eggs and Ham. And We did an activity on healthy food choices and making healthy meals. At the end we also made a chart of each item the students and teachers brought and wrote where they originated from. We also discussed the importance of healthy eating and trying new foods. Our students were all VERY excited to bring and discuss their snacks for this challenge. One of our students posted about a new food they tried after our zoom meeting and he really loved it!
