Do You Really Need It?

Completed

Description

We discussed the difference between a want and a need and brainstormed some ideas for each. We also made connections to a video we watched a few weeks ago titled "The Clean Bin Project." Interestingly, some students noticed that it really is situational. We technically could do without kitchen appliances to make food, but realistically we do need them. Also, sometimes these needs turn into wants with fancier appliances that we could do without. Students then completed the handout and we will be doing a check in next week to see if they met their goal.

How Big Are Your Carbon Feet?

Our class discussed how to make our carboon footprint smaller. We then filled out our footprints and put them up in our classroom as a reminder. We will reflect on if we made a difference in our journals each week.

One Hour No Power

Completed

Description

The class brainstormed ideas on ways/times to use no power. One way that we could all do this together was by using no power during our lunch hour. We made sure the lights were off during our "dining in the dark" experience and tracked our progress. Now, this is our new norm!

Tips and Tricks

Completed

Description

This submission is for "Do You Really Need It?" but it is not showing up in the list... we hope it is still okay to submit! Our class brainstormed the difference between "wants" and "needs" and students went home to continue the discussion with their families. Each student chose one thing that they would give up for the next day (although many students said they would give it up for a longer period of time).

What’s For Lunch?

Completed

Description

Our class learned about where and how the food we eat is grown. We learned about the 100 mile diet and how eating locally grown produce is better for our environment. We researched local farms and came up with a list of produce grown within the lower mainland. Students created recipes and posted them on our online portal. We hope to try some of them out during the spring break!
