What a week!
Student teacher finishing up. Report card comments. Assessments. Assessment. Assessments.
In the middle of it all, we have been learning about saving the Earth.
This week we talked about pollution.
The kids watched this YouTube clip on the Great Pacific Garbage Patch.
It's not great quality but it sent the right message to the kids. There are lots of other great ones online, too.
We also did a little experiment, inspired from Pinterest.
This is the pin I found.
This is how ours turned out.
It was a great conversation starter!
I think I could actually see little light bulbs lighting up when we were talking about how easy it was to create the pollution but how hard it was to undo it.
Such a rewarding and simple activity!
Have you had to teach about pollution?
I would love to hear and see your ideas!
