Our Environment our Hopes
All grade 8 teams were involved and we are hoping to include the whole school. We are currently working on Systems in the action unit and bought a food cycler to compost food every day for a month to put it in our garden to grow. We are hoping to have parents involved in the project and local garden centre for supplies. We believe in a sustainable environment and stewardship to protect it.
My students have been working on slam poetry to advocate for the issue that matters to them the most. Environmental protection has been on top of their list to support their environment. They want to save the planet and take an action to save it. Composting in our classroom was the first thing to do as an action. Making our own vegetable/ herb garden is our final step.
Reflection & Celebration
Students were eager to take care of their Earth around their own world. They are celebrating each new plant is coming out of the soil. They are teaching others how to take care of it. They took the lead in community clean-up and are mindful that they are the ones who are going to take the lead to protect their environment.
