For this challenge, we invited a local resident who has been every involved with environmental awareness in our community for many years. He drove his electric car to our school, pointed out all the physical and mechanical differences between the two and then he educated us on what our city’s Energy Connection Committee has been working at securing funding for electric charging stations around our community. We are so proud to be part of a community that is moving forward!
Do You Really Need It?
We asked the class to fill out the Do You Really Need It sheets after we explained it to them. Their challenge was to write five energy-using items and record how long they used it for. Once they finished that, the class had to give up one thing that used energy for the day such as screens. When they handed them in, we looked them over and took pictures of the best ones. It was a really fun challenge that we all enjoyed!
How Big Are Your Carbon Feet?
Limited Edition: Game Time!
My friend and I researched food waste facts and printed them onto the cards as questions. Then we made a game board from cardboard and paper. We also made a life-o-meter to measure your lives. So how you play is one person asks a question about food waste and the other person replies with an answer. If they get it right, they move the amount of spaces written on the bottom of the card. If they get it wrong, they lose one life on the life-o-meter. You play as one whole team. You win by reaching the end and you lose by losing all your lives.
One Hour No Power
Round and Round it Goes
To complete this challenge, we researched examples of businesses that have accepted the option to change the path of their products. Then we decided to make a poster to show the difference between circular economy and linear economy. We also explained what it was and gave some examples.
The Phantom of the Classroom
Tips and Tricks
We talked to the class about what we were doing and chose people to do announcements. The class gave us tips and tricks to say on the announcements and put on posters. We made one big poster and two small ones. We will be on the announcements during Earth Week from Monday to Friday!
We started with our to do list which included some tips and tricks to help you save water. Next we added fun fact rain drops to educate our class. After we presented our poster and told everyone about our project and passed out the data collection sheets. We waited two days for the results. When the data came back, there was a LOT of math to do! This was a lot of fun so I hope we can save water even more!
What’s For Lunch?
What’s Old is New Again
Our class had a project called Trash2Treasure. The challenge was to take something that would’ve gone to the landfill and up-cycle them into something new! For example a quilt or bench. We weren’t allowed to buy anything. You could ask neighbours, family and friends only!
