Mrs. Bonnie's teaching model
Mrs. Bonnie's teaching model: to attain grade 5 science curriculum outcomes: unit on weather. These activities will be done throughout a 4 - 6 week period.
Do many activities, including the poster activity (Environment Canada), to understand climate change. Look at local evidence too.
Discuss impacts (positive and negative) of climate change on plants, wildlife, health, jobs, transportation and agriculture. Then do an art project, a solo, a role play and read "The First Mutants' Circle".
Brainstorm activities which can be done locally (and begin doing). Teams will monitor school recycling program and energy consumption. Finish art and present.
Present results of monitoring activities. Names of those who are doing an action (or will in the future) will be entered onto the Mutants' Circle website.
