This week we began our new Unit of Inquiry, Sharing the Planet. We discuss the way people use the Earth's natural resources and impact that people have on the environment and the animals that live in it. After watching a video about the impact of plastic waste in the world's oceans, the students decided that they would like to take action to help fight this problem. after much discussion, they agreed that they would need to research the issue further. They did decide that they would like to share what they learn on International Children's Day. Their plan is to turn the Grade One classroom into an ocean to teach people about the very serious problem facing the world today.
