Do You Really Need It?
We Completed the worksheet for Do You Really Need It? We discussed what we use, what is a need, or a want, which electronic items stayed plugged in, and which are plugged in only when needed. We also talked about things we could do instead of using our electronics. After a day or two, we discussed if we used our selected item, and what we could do better, or what we did instead.
After watching some videos for the What's for Lunch challenge, students completed the Limited Edition page, thinking of ideas how food gets wasted. We brainstormed ideas of how to reduce food waste, and added the ideas to our gameboard. Students played Food Waste Monopoly.
How Big Are Your Carbon Feet?
One Hour No Power
We tracked the time we used no power. We turned off the lights, and did other activities that did not require the lights nor Smart Board. We continued our day, go outside, do reading, writing, spelling, Math, Spanish, Art, watched a movie, did Science, and Social Studies! We even had a real power outage during one of our recorded days!
Tips and Tricks
We read a book called The Water Princess. We talked about Water Conservation, and how we can save Water. Students made infographics. We did discuss energy conservation too, making jot notes. We did Carbon footprints, so energy conservation was part of both discussions.
What’s For Lunch?
We discussed where our food comes from. We collected food stickers from home to see where our produce has come from. We also brainstormed foods grown locally during the spring/summer. Students worked on using a locally grown food to share a recipe. We also learned about wheat and the process from seed to table using a book called Seeds to Bread. They worked on a recipe that uses flour. This was relevant to them because in Alberta, we grow lots of wheat.
