Our Eco Exhibition!

Today 4A, 4B and 3/4C hosted an Eco Exhibition!

This special event was a celebration of the knowledge gained and work completed this term during our “Eco Warriors” inquiry topic.

Usually our classroom looks like this…

And then this!

Each student had a stall containing lots of work from the term. Students each chose an environmental issue to investigate and a lot of their work focussed on their individual issues. Work samples at the Eco Exhibition included:

  • An information report
  • A picture story book
  • A mascot
  • A poster
  • A homework task from earlier in the term
  • A slideshow

Nearly every class at BHPS visited the Eco Exhibition, and it was fantastic to see so many parents attend as well. As classes, parents, grandparents and teachers walked around the exhibition, the students shared the knowledge they had learned, discussed environmental issues facing our planet and showed off their fantastic pieces of work. Check out the photo slideshow below!

Class Presentations – Eco Warriors

Yesterday, students delivered class presentations related to our inquiry topic.

Our inquiry topic, titled Eco Warriors, focuses on being sustainable and aware of global environmental issues. To make this unit more student-directed, everyone chose their own environmental topic to study. Students have been completing tasks relating to their topic and one requirement was to prepare a class presentation as a homework task.

Students were able to choose their own format for their individual presentations. They could prepare and film their presentations at home to share on the interactive whiteboard or deliver them “live” in front of the class.

The presentation options included:

  • Creating a television commercial
  • Behind The News (BTN) segment
  • Rap or song
  • News segment about how your home is environmentally friendly
  • News report about the environmental features of Barwon Heads
  • Stop motion animation
  • Oral presentation
  • Poster

Some of the environmental issues selected by the 4B students included:

  • Global warming
  • Endangered animals
  • Reduce, reuse, recycle
  • Marine life
  • Great Barrier Reef
  • Deforestation
  • Renewable energy

All of the students did a fantastic job preparing and sharing their work! It was wonderful to see the creativity demonstrated by the students and everyone learned some interesting facts from each presentation.
