In order to support our unit on Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, we took the Excellence class on a field trip to the Recycle Center of Pobsook. Not only was it an eye opening experience, but it was one that highly supported our key concepts of form, connection, and responsibility. Students were able to learn all about the different processes involved in composting, making strong connections with our unit, and demonstrating a strong sense of responsibility by participating in many of the earth friendly activities.
As a form of reflection, students documented their own experiences during the trip. Using our classroom iPad, students used the application PicCollage to design a creative form of documentation supporting their new understandings.[envira-gallery id=”799″]
