The first week of the project was great. The kids had the chance to watch videos on Youtube about climate changes, we disscussed about what happens into the world, how climate changes affects all living entities. Even the kids are very young, I kept the explanations simple and emphasized the importance of how us, the humans, should protect our Earth, i raised their awareness on what happens when climate changes.
We made a list of causes, the kids explained how they understand what climate change is defined and we thought of our connection to the climate changes.
The story listed below was created inside an eTwinning project and it was perfect for me to read it (the first part of it - about CAUSES) to the kids and show them the image.
The other 2 parts of the story will be read when we get to EFFECTS & SOLLUTIONS of climate changes.
"The Sun was about to rise. It was going to be a hot summer day. The day was going to become a real adventure for the 3 friends…Anna, Lily and Leo. Anna had still kept in a tiny box some magic dust, from their previous adventure story. They decided to use it to fly around the World today and learn all about climate changes. Today was going to be about Global Warming.
So, the 3 friends spread magic dust all over them and flew above the World. They could see the causes of the global warming: increased concentrations of greenhouses gases in the atmosphere, mainly from human activities such as burning fossil fuels, deforestation and farming. So, Anna explained her friends:
“When people burn out fossil fuels like coal, oil and gas to create electricity and power our cars, we release CO2 pollution in the atmosphere. Deforestation means that people remove or burn out vegetation, and the stored carbon is released back into the atmosphere as CO2. Also, by farming we mean animals that produce methane, a greenhouse gas.” Anna explained to her friends."
