In Kindy, we have been learning about sustainability. The children have been looking at ways they can reduce, reuse and recycle. We have been learning about the types of everyday household/classroom items we can recycle and items we can reuse and turn into something new.
After reading “Not a Box” by Antoinette Portis the children brainstormed different ideas on how we could reuse some large boxes. The children all had the opportunity to vote on what they would like to transform these boxes into. We collected and recorded this data using a picture graph.
Soon after we voted we set to work making our wonderful ideas come to life. This was lots of fun… almost as much fun as playing in the boxes once we had finished constructing, painting and putting on the last final touches.
We have been discussing ways that we can care and look after our world. The children have been exploring the impact of land and water pollution and have been empowered to develop a responsibility to care for our environment.
