Our 5th graders worked on the topic of earth and focused on the impact of plastic as a pollutant of the sea. Integrating Language, English, Science, Art and ICT, we investigated the effects of plastic and thought of ways to reduce its use in everyday life, protecting our sea too.
The children also suggested setting up a campaign to raise awareness in the local community (other students, parents, tourists etc) about the harmful effects of plastic. They collaborated to design posters to be displayed and leaflets to be handed out. Moreover, we have planned to join the "Let's clean up Europe campaign" and clean up one of the most well-known beaches in our area ("Potamos" beach), scheduled for next month.
