Year 2 Trash Audit

In Year 2’s Sharing the Planet unit of inquiry, students explored the impact that human choices make on our planet and our responsibility to care for the Earth. They performed a trash audit to discover how much waste our school accumulates. The results were reported to the Eco-warriors. Math was incorporated, as they sorted the waste into categories and tallied the results. The students discovered we had quite a lot of paper waste and explored ways we can reduce our wastage.

They also discovered that it was difficult to remove all pollutants from water by creating a DIY water filter to see if they could clean polluted water. The experiment showed that they may need to filter the water again and possibly add another filtration material in the mix!

Through various learning experiences, students learned how plastic pollutants harm animals, and were interested in the different inventions being made to address the problem of plastic pollution in our environment.
