We are called to care for our common home …

The middles dove into their new inquiry topic this term about environment, looking at our rich question, “How are we called to care for our common home?”

We started by identifying different environments in Australia and sorting pictures into the different categories. We even looked at where these environments are in Australia.

After that we discussed the different impacts on these particular environments. We came up with loads of them. Here are some we came up with:

What are some other impacts on the environments?

Global Celebrations Expo

At the end of Term 3 the Middles finished off their inquiry topic by having a Global Celebrations Expo. The students focused on countries around the world and researched what special celebrations these countries had. Then they presented their research to the school community. As part of their presentation students had an activity for students to do that was related to one of the celebrations they focused on. We had a great turn out!
