Coolbinia's Your Move team explored carbon dioxide and the Greenhouse Effect today. They did this by doing and discussing two activities.
The first activity was a Climate Change card game, where the action cards were given positive or negative numbers related to their impact on CO2 in the atmosphere. The 'positive' cards referred to activities that produced more CO2 e.g. 'Human drive cars +2', 'Human cut down trees +4'. The 'negative' cards referred to activities that reduced CO2 e.g. 'Human ride bikes -2', 'Humans plant trees -4'. The students enjoyed playing this game and discussed how they would make the game better e.g. they thought 'Humans burn rubbish' could be a +4 and 'Humans cut down trees' could be +6.
The second activity involved doing an experiment to demonstrate the Greenhouse Effect, using vinegar and bicarb soda. As the photos show, the students were impressed by this experiment. They discussed the impact of carbon dioxide as a greenhouse gas.
Both these activities were part of the original resources in the TravelSmart to school package, that the school obtained in 2014. It is great to know that these resources are still educating and delighting our children!
