Dates: from April 5th to April 23rd  

Teacher: Laura Fernandez Alonso 

Description and resources

I started to create this learning scenario the last academic year and during this current period I have continued working on it, including new resources and activities to enrich the unit. Also the fact to work with a different group of students make it more interesting.

The topic is plastics, focused to real life. Students discovered the types of plastic, the real information that appear printed, the Pacific Garbege Patch, the lifecycle of a plastic bottle, the textiles and the relationship between textiles and plastics, the bioplastics and how to make bioplastic at home, the discovered how long an object takes to dissapear by creating a waste timeline or they knew how PET is made by doing a puzzle.

Different resources were used. All material created (we work with worksheets, I prepare them for the students to work) are upload to a onenote site. Some of resources used were: Microsoft One Note, flipgrid, Genially, Microsoft Teams, Mentimeter…
