One Hour No Power

Completed

Description

We have large east facing windows in our classroom. With the daily expansion of morning light since January, we can work to our usual schedule without using any power. We worked without artificial light. We use a document camera regularly and we avoided using it for four days. This was challenging for the teacher! We had to turn on the lights early on the morning of February 23 as it was overcast outside and it was difficult to see our activity sheets. Once that activity was completed, we turned off the lights again.

Tips and Tricks

Completed

Description

We talked about things we can do to help Mother Earth. We made a list of our ideas. We broadcast our tips and tricks to the entire school each morning for about two weeks. Two students made an announcement each morning. We have labels on our bins for dried markers, compost, paper, beverage containers, plastic wrap and plastic pots (yogurt, etc). Students from other classes come to our room to recycle juice boxes, fruit peels and dried markers. We also have a worm bin where we feed the worms with organic waste material. We have attached photos of our labelled bins and some of our tips which we shared with our school.

What’s Old is New Again

Completed

Description

Using red felt from a thrift store and white yarn left over from another project, we sewed red hearts. We stuffed the hearts with felt left over from cutting out the hearts. We added a piece of yarn to hang our hearts. They will be used as pincushions.
