Earth Day!

Monday, April 22, 2013

We are currently on the transdisciplinary theme "Sharing the Planet" and our IB unit is entitled "What's Your Part?" We have been learning how our choices can effect the environment. We have started a recycling location outside our classroom and take it every other Thursday to recycle mixed paper, aluminum, and plastic. With today being earth day, we got to talking about what might happen if we don't do our part for the planet. One of the students suggested we do our part by picking up trash on the playground. We loved her suggested and quickly gathered a few trash bags and our recycling bins. Little did we realize, more than just the playground needed a little help! We walked all the way around the school and came back with a lot of litter! The kids were sad to see our campus this way. It looks like this discussion is to be continued...
