|Studying the location of rivers, oceans, canals and lakes around the world!|
We have had such a fun time exploring the earth's precious natural resource, water! Through the key concepts form, causation and responsibility, we have investigated, conservation, the water cycle, needs and wants and pollution.
Through all of our inquires we have found that conservation of water is so much more than saving it. It is our responsibility to use it wisely for people and all living things.
Freddy the Fish, in a story we read, went on an adventure! On his way, he ended up finding all kinds of ways our water gets polluted. Our Explorer's were quick to take action though and saved him by putting him back in clean water at the end of his adventure.
A true highlight of our week was the amazing outdoor class with Mrs. Semrad! "Roddie's Mom" is an Environmental Scientist and helped us understand exactly how water gets filtered and then we were able to try to save our own mini Lake Erie's from harmful pollutants. It wasn't an easy task, but we sure used our creativity to try to get the pollutants out of the our lake. We had a BLAST!Thank you too to Owen, Kai and Lily's mom Laurie for making a fantastic assistant!
This lesson sure inspired our caring Explorers to take action! Here are just a few of the signs that were made for their neighborhoods!
We are still celebrating the hard work of all our Explorers during their concert! They really did a tremendous job. Wally the Water Drop even spent some time back at CIS.
