Do You Really Need It?

Completed

Description

While we were learning virtually students were asked in the morning to think about something that they normally use each day, and to go without it for that entire day. We discussed together suggestions for what they could give up, but that it could not include their computer because we needed it for school! It could be anything from the toaster to their video game consoles. The next day they wrote a journal reflection about their experience, and if it was difficult or easy to go without that item.

Limited Edition: Game Time!

Completed

Description

We played a game of "What's Missing" as a Google Slides presentation, which fit in with our virtual learning. The first slide each round is the original, the second has something missing, and the third slide highlights what had disappeared. The game resets each round. We used an image of a local farmers market, and a map of the world with where various foods we like come from (in connection with their carbon footprint to get to us!) as our themes for the game.

One Hour No Power

Completed

Description

Every day we have been turning the classroom lights and projector off during nutritional breaks and have been eating with just the natural daylight from our three large classroom windows. This reminds us to leave everything turned off while we are outside for recess as well. At 40 minutes per day, twice a day, we have been saving just over 6.5 hours per week since February and will continue doing so until the end of the year!

Tips and Tricks

Completed

Description

The students from class 5/6-1 signed up on a calendar for a different day of the month and then, with a partner or in a small group, they recorded voice notes of their energy conservation tips and tricks (as students cannot enter the office to read them in person with current protocols). They began their announcement with an energy joke as a "hook" to catch the attention of their school audience. Ex: Why can't wind turbines make plans? They're always up in the air! Then they shared different tips, friendly reminders (turning off lights) and tricks with the school.

The class took on the challenge of finding materials around home, and repurposing things to make something beautiful. Since we are currently learning virtually the class all added their art to a slideshow so that everyone could enjoy their art.
