My third grade class has been studying Global Warming and its effects on our planet. During week 1 (and week 2) we began reading the Magic School Bus Climate Challenge book. We also watched National Geographic and WWF videos and then researched what is happening. The students divided into groups and worked together to prepare props and a presentation. The groups were: Pollution, Extreme Weather, Ice Caps Melting, Oceans Rising, Deforestation and Endangered Animals. They had so much fun learning and are determined to take action. Their first step was to stop using plastic water bottles (a big problem in Italy) in our classroom. Next week we have invited the Director General for Sustainable Development, Climate and Energy of the Ministry of Environment and Protection of the Territory and Sea- Italy.
