Grade 3 students are always reminded about the importance of saving our planet through sustainable living, and how to reduce, recycle, and reuse. This activity started with the Earth Day Group activity and continued by creating crafts using recyclable materials during the Spring vacation. This was applied in Social studies “For a Better World”unit, also integrated in Science “Endangered Animals”, and in English ongoing activities throughout the year. 

 

The objectives behind this activity were to:

 

1) Recognize the importance of environmental monitoring

2) Identify and explain the benefits of reusing, reducing, and recycling

3) Determine solutions for encouraging recycling in our community

 

Some students used plastic bottles to create piggy banks, others reused small cans to make pencil holders. One project was the peacock where the student used cotton buds, plastic spoons, and cardboard pieces that were not needed. Another student used the big oil tank and transformed it into a storage seat. A Smurf’s house was done using newspaper, bottle caps, an empty carton, and different plastic decorating flowers. 

Some also transformed fabric softeners into flower pots.

 

Through interdisciplinary learning, Ahliah School aims to nurture self-confidence, respect, compassion, creativity, a joy for learning and working collaboratively within a diverse environment. 

Ahliah students are primed to take responsibility for their future and to be active citizens engaged in local, regional, and global issues.
