How Do YOU See Your World?


Today we embarked on a scavenger hunt, doing our best to look at the world around us from a slightly different perspective, from the eyes of the resource-conscious individual. Where do things come from? Where are they going? What happens when I throw this onto the ground, turning it into pollution? What happens when I put it in that blue bag instead? On this hunt, we looked for ordinary things around us through extraordinary eyes. These are some of the things we found.

For clarification, we accidentally skipped the capital resource heading. Oops, we'll get it next time.

Every time I read about your class I get so excited! Don't you have 1st and 2nd graders?? I'm loving that your class is creating an atmosphere that leads them to be critical thinkers. Way to go!

2nd-3rd graders, give or take. And thank you! They don't appreciate it at times, but I think it's just such an important skill to develop; even if it doesn't all come across now, they should be able to appreciate it later, and couple it with creativity and the world is your adventure.
