Game Time!

Completed

Description

We discussed food waste, especially in Canada. We visited the suggested websites together then students did some of their own research. Students created trivia questions related to food waste, which I combined into a Kahoot. The class had fun playing the Kahoot and were encouraged to share their learning with family members. I am sharing my assignment and a screen shot of the Kahoot.

How Big Are Your Carbon Feet?

Completed

Description

We explored resources provided in the lesson plan. Students used 2 different surveys to determine their carbon footprints and we discussed the differences and similarities. Students created an outline, as per "Go Go Green", of their footprint, drew a sketchnote of activities that contribute to their own personal carbon footprint, then created an action plan of three things they could do to reduce their personal carbon footprint. The actions were recorded on the footprint template and displayed in the classroom. A portion of the display is pictured.
