We began our unit of the 3 Rs- Reduce, Reuse and Recycle with the movie Wall.e . Wall.e faced a problem on Earth, the humans had left Earth leaving robots behind to clean up all their garbage and waste hoping to return later.
After watching the movie we studied categories of garbage, what happens to our waste & and the problem of plastic in our oceans. We learned about the 3 Rs and observed the waste during lunch in our cafeteria.
Next , we moved onto the F.B.I and ways these decomposers help break things down. The F.B.I. ( fungus, bacteria, invertebrates) helps break things down and create healthy dirt.
This week we investigated the I- Invertebrates . Specifically , worms and Banana Slugs. We were also learning two songs , Banana Slug and The F.B.I..
So much learning and fun... The banana slug race was full of cheering, learning and giggles.
No Invertebrates were harmed and all were returned to their habitats with stories of gentle children.
