We have been learning about sustainability this term as our CBL Big Idea. We are using our new learning about how to be sustainable in our rich task.
We were able to choose to be an Architect, a Community Council Builder or an Environmental Educator. Together we are designing and creating a sustainable model community. Architects and Community Builders are designing sustainable buildings or community areas while the Educators are creating information presentations to share with people why our community should be sustainable.
We have learnt about solar panels and other energy saving options such as building materials, paint colours and reusing water in different ways.
Our community will have houses with solar panels, water tanks, vegetable gardens and other sustainable ideas. A park, library, hospital, water park and swimming pool will also be included in our community.
We are almost complete with our buildings and will be preparing for a Community Showcase soon. Keep an eye out for more details!
Here are some pictures of our community being designed and created by us these last few weeks:
Does your house have any sustainable features?
