Limited Edition: Game Time!
After the class learned about food waste with a short presentation, they were split into a couple groups to play a online board game (made by a student). Due to covid restrictions, the game was less interactive, as only one person could move the pieces on the board and that person had to share their screen so everyone could see the board game. However, the class was able to answer food waste related trivia questions and look at the food waste information on each space of the board game they landed on. The class greatly enjoyed this activity.
Tips and Tricks
For this challenge we brainstormed and made a slideshow presenting 20 different tips to save energy. We presented one tip every day to our class, encouraging people to follow the tips. A few examples of tips are to turn the lights off when you leave a room, or turning off the water when you are brushing your teeth. These tips were also shown on the TVs in our school!

Two enterprising students started with a presentation on what the class will be doing for the next 24 hours which was to track their water usage on the Day 1 Google Form. The following day, they presented again but this time, had a discussion on different strategies to save water. The main way they got the class to say their strategies was by using the waterfall technique where everyone would type in the chat of the google meet at the same time. They once again got the class to track water usage but this time, asked the class to implement the strategies they discussed. This was tracked on the Day 2 Google Form. After they collected all the data from the majority of the class through the google forms, they transferred it to a spreadsheet and added up the totals that the class used on both days. On the first day, the class used 7008.72 L of water and on the second day used 6622.72 L of water which in total saved 386 L of water!
What’s For Lunch?
Students learned about food miles and what they are, then proceeded to find recipes using local ingredients to learn how much time it takes. They used the website https://www.ontario.ca/foodland/page/availability-guide to pick a season and decide the local food to use in the recipes!
