For our unit, “What’s in the Bin”, Grade 1 students had a chance to watch a short video about the possible effects of the use of disposable garbage. They then will begin their development of posters which will reflect their understanding of the effects of making certain life choices in regards to waste and the environment. The posters will be using “Pages” software and an editable template in which the students can share their ideas.
Another video introduces the concept of sorting our recycling from non-recyclable garbage. Follow up sorting and recycling activities and games can also be accessed through the students’ Netvibes page.
