Our Projects

The Project of Global Warming part 1

Jaana's and Petri's 3rd Graders started to work with the theme Global warming. All that was new to them and that's why we started with thinking about the Finnish climate, talking about the weather, watching videos about the Global warming and writing down ideas on Padlet. Our students used their own mobile phones while working with this project. Next week we will continue our project by thinking about the consequences and making cartoons about the ways how to decrease the Global warming. Janne's 9th Graders worked as a translators after the 3rd Graders had finalized their part in Finnish.

Project week 2

During the week 2 all the students from our campus took part in this project. We gathered together into the PE class and had a lesson together with 150 students and 6 teachers. During the lesson students got a possibility to express their knowledge about the consequences of the Global warming. Many of them knew a lot of the theme and we had a great conversation moment. All students saw also a few videos about the consequences. At the end of the project all 150 students wrote down their own thoughts about the consequences on the Padlet site by using their own mobile phones. At the end of the week Janne's 9th Graders translated the Sway into English.

The task of the week 3 is to make cartoons so our students got as a homework task a task to think how they could decrease the Global warming. We will continue with their thoughts next week.

Cartoons

During the week 3 our students made cartoons in Finland and by that way they thought the ways to decrease Global warming. Janne's 9th Graders translated a few cartoons into English.

Week 4: reflection

During the week 4 our students reflected their work by making a reflection video.
