Do You Really Need It?

Completed

Description

We had a discussion about needs vs wants, essentials and things that are a privilege. We made a list and the students determined which items fit into what category. Then the students decided individually what energy consuming devises they would give up and the amount of time.

Game Time!

Completed

Description

We created a game where students would evaluate their life style to consider how their choices impact the environment. Then they reflected on how to encourage others to make a positive change in their behaviour. This game is similar to “What time is it Mr Wolf”, they lined up on one end and then posed questions. Depending on their actions students stepped in whatever direction they choose. Steps forward indicate a positive impact, steps backwards a negative impact.
