Caring for the Earth Project description...!!!

This year we have been working on a project with all of our primary students, participating specially with the Grade 4 and 5, Both in Art and English class, we have been rolling out videos, worksheets, drawings, and projects based on the concept of Global Warming.
The idea since the beginning in the English lesson has been to come to the understanding that Global Warming is real. We began the project by showing a video about the causes and effects of Global Warming. The video is narrated by Morgan Freeman. We then showed a follow up video explaining the scientific processes involved in climate change.
After the videos, students brainstormed vocabulary terms related to what they had watched. We also created some worksheets and word searches for the students to complete to gage the level of interest in the topic.
We then made a PowerPoint presentation with the vocabulary terms that each grade had brainstormed individually. The presentation defined the terms with sentences in English, and pictures that related to the event.
Next, we created the dialogues of the Role Plays in small groups in the English lesson, which were later on agreed for the whole group.  Simultaneously, in Art class, we started drawing and coloring “before” and “after” drawings in our art notebooks. The drawings were supposed to represent an effect “before” Global Warming, and the same effect  ”after” Global Warming.  The drawings were magnificent, the students really grasped onto the idea!
We finished off the preparation work for the final event on Earth Day by creating Global Warming effects murals with our 4th and 5thgraders. At the same time, our 1st, 2nd, and 3rd graders were learning the song titled, “Whole World”, to sing at the main event.
When the murals were finished, we selected in the English classroom one presenter from each group to explain the mural to the audience in English. Afterwards, the students practiced reading as well as dramatizing  the Role Plays, focusing on pronunciation, stress, rhythm and entonation, involving all the students in the interaction.
We are finished! That was our Global Warming project in a nutshell. Please remember our message, Earth Day is about celebrating what our beautiful planet has to give us. If we continue to destroy our planet, then the Earth will no longer be a beautiful place to live in. WE ARE THE FUTURE! Let us show everyone what beauty looks like…!!!
