Green Global Citizens: Kickstarting Sustainability
Posted 05/07/2014 10:47AM

5th grade students have spent a majority of the year investigating and reflecting upon their digital footprint, but recently their focus has moved to include something a bit larger: human’s ecological footprint on our planet earth.

Over the past month or so, fifth grade students have been researching and exploring environmental issues through media and writing and reflecting on what they are most passionate about from their newly acquired knowledge. Now, what better way to explore this further this than to experience it firsthand?
This week, grade 5 students will travel to Lantau Island in Hong Kong to take part in a 2-day environmental education program that explores their vital role as humans in our environment. Students and teachers will investigate the local environment with environmentalists, animal experts, organic farming experts, and habitat specialists. In order to enrich our understanding of the role we play in our environment, we will hike the local mountains, plant trees, clean up the local beaches, explore habitats and learn about local animals and organic farming.
It is truly our time to: disconnect, connect, understand, enjoy and respect. Let the adventure begin!
