Students worked on defining Weather vs Climate and shared research results on Causes of Climate Change.
Students worked on two activities.
1. Effects of Climate Change in Japan I --based on reliable sources
Students researched the effects of Climate Change in Japan on each of the following four categories--flora (plants), fauna (animals), weather, and human activities/lifestyles.
2. Effects of Climate Change in Japan II --based on intergeneration interviews
Each student interviewed an older generation for witness statements regarding Climate Change.
Each student asked the same three questions plus one additional free question.
1) Do you think Climate Change is a hoax* (h-ou-ks)? *作り話
2) Why? What is your evidence?
3) What do you think should be done?
4) Other (free)
Students (of Education and Child Development) viewed and commented on the works of primary school children in Australia who presented Climate Change definitions and causes.
Students prepared for asynchronous virtual exchanges with students in Vietnam and Belgium.
Students presented Climate Change Effects in Japan using audio-recorded slides and flipgrids.
Students created their Leaves of Promises to be part of a Global Climate Action with WWF's Forest of Promises--individual promises and demands for promises to world leaders attending COP26.
They are also working on Climate Action to tackle Climate Change, locally.
Students focused on the ultimate question of this project, What Action Can We Take to Tackle Climate Change?
Six groups presented specific local actions that would contribute to the reduction of greenhouse gases. They proposed and urged others to go vegan-a-week, carry portable straws, join a fashion brand's recycling campaign, turn peels into compost, select certified environmentally friendly food sources, follow zero waste recipes, take public transportation, shorter showers, and turn off lights frequently.
