LOVE THE WORLD, PROTECT YOURSELF

SUMMARY

Global Warming occurs as a result of the various activities of people in our world. The main theme of our project is to create environmental protection awareness in our students and to raise awareness about climate change in students. In order to achieve this, we will carry out various activities related to recycling.

OBJECTIVES

  • To give the students in our class love of nature
  • To understand that nature and the animals in nature have a right to life
  • To teach the effects of climate change on living spaces of living things
  • To increase the awareness that some of the waste from our homes will be recycled
  • Solving problems they encounter in daily life according to engineering design stages (STEM).
  • Creating Nature-Based Solutions

TIME: 

Three weeks

PROBLEM STATUS:

What activities can we do to prevent environmental pollution in our world? We will organize recycling activities with our students to find an answer to this question.

MATERIALS:

WATER, GLYCERINE, VINEGAR, FOOD COLOR, ALUMINUM FOIL, COOKIE MOLD, STARCH, ORANGE, LEMON, CİNNAMON, JAR, TRASH SHISH

INTER-DISCIPLINARY RELATIONS:

Science:
Offers suggestions for the solution of an environmental problem in its immediate vicinity or in our country. Discusses the benefits and harms of human-environment interaction through examples. (5TH GRADE)
Designs a project regarding the recycling of domestic solid and liquid wastes. Develops a project to deliver reusable items to those in need. (6TH GRADE)

Maths:
Creates different geometric shapes with the same perimeter. Solves problems related to calculating the perimeter of shapes.

Engineering:
Uses the engineering design cycle. Prepares tests and develops the product’s prototype.

Technology:
Uses the necessary technologies to design components. Uses the necessary measurement tools to develop the prototype. Through technology literacy, demonstrates the ability to access information, select, use and troubleshoot existing technologies, and develop ideas and theories by actively exploring real-world problems.

WORKING PROCESS:
