In the first week, the children learned a clear difference between weather and climate. We played many games, imitating wind, rain, storm, snow. The parents of the children also joined the project. They lent us books, globes...
At home, they also talked to children about climate change. So, one child told his mother how he saw a polar bear sitting on a small piece of ice. When his mother asked him what would happen to the bear if the ice melted, he said he would swim away. The question remains where the bear will go if the land at the North Pole disappears?
This week, we learned about endangered animal species and the effects of climate change. Specifically, we talked about the gases emitted by volcanoes, which are increasingly erupting and directly affecting global warming. To help clean the air, we planted plants.
Through many experiments, we learned what water pollution is and how it can be prevented. We also learned what deforestation is!
