Buckle Up

Completed

Description

Students learned about different types of transportation around the world. They sorted transportation into 'better for the environment' and 'worse for the environment'. We had a discussion about public transportation and how that could be worse because many forms of public transit still run on fossil fuels, but they might be classified as better for the environment because many people ride at a time which removes cars from the road. Students worked together to craft forms of transportation out of clay and place them on a poster.

Community Connections

Completed

Description

Students helped with the set up of the Prince George Seed Library! The Prince George Seed Library is a community initiative that aims to improve food security by providing free seeds to local residents, as well as seed saving workshops so that community members can learn how to save their own seeds and return a portion to the Seed Library for the next growing season. The students tested the germination rates for over 60 different varieties of local seeds. These germination rates were used to determine which seeds could be sorted and packaged to be used in the Seed Library. The Prince George Seed Library will officially open on March 5th.

What’s For Lunch?

Completed

Description

We researched where the food in our lunch came from. Then we created a map showing the distance some of our foods had to travel to get into our lunch kits (we couldn't figure out where the processed food came from, but it sparked good discussion about how removed we are from the food we eat!).
