A Green-Powered Canada
We began with a couple of videos explaining renewable energy and non-renewable energy, their advantages and disadvantages. We then made a list of types of renewable energy and how they created, and discussed how they are a cleaner energy source important to the earth and to all living things. Once the research was gathered the students then drew and wrote about a chosen renewable energy source.
The students explored different modes of transportation through poetry and a story. After discussing ways to get to school we read, sang and performed the “walk to school” poem. After coming up with ways to get to school that were environmentally responsible the students designed a smart mobility poster. These posters are now hung in our hallway is for others to see.
Monday March 22nd, 2021. Today is World Water Day. Our class explored some water resources and did a book l study of ‘The Water Princess. We wore blue shirts as a schoolwide initiative to increase awareness. We also made posters and hung them in our classroom window so our message to our community could be spread- turn off the tap, save water and don’t waste. We also posted on our classroom instagram about our exciting learning day!
Do You Really Need It?
Our class shared plants that we had at home and we talked about the parts of a plant the importance of the sun water and even worms to make plants grow.

Being at home made growing the plants together difficult but some children were able to start their seedlings at home.
How Big Are Your Carbon Feet?
During virtual learning this was a great challenge for introducing CEDC to families at home. After watching some great short videos found the lesson plan families were encouraged to complete and submit their carbon footprint results. Once families did the that, the student did the footprint promise pictures. Excellent challenge for all ages!
