Task A: Earth Warrior

Task A: Earth Warrior

This task is involves just a little English (e.g. drawing a picture, writing a few sentences) and is a simple, thought-provoking activity about the project of the month. Without the need of an in-depth understanding of the science behind it, we will explore the subject matter and learn some related vocabulary.

  • It can be worked on individually or in a group.
  • Teachers can decide how much class time to dedicate.
  • Interdisciplinary work is always encouraged (e.g. English for the writing; Science/Maths for the gathering of data; Art for display and design of information gathered (e.g. posters / information leaflets)).
  • STEM Ginger Education CLIL and/or science teacher support is always available.

Month's project

The Power of Plastic – Its uses and effect on the environment

Plastic is all around us and it is, undeniably, incredibly useful. However, it is also toxic and it takes millennia to breakdown. It gets into our waterways, onto our dinner plates, harms and kills mammals, birds and marine life by trapping them or resulting in starvation; fishing nets are made of it, bottles and bags, even the skin cream we use contain micro-plastics (so small we can’t even see them). Our mindless use and disposal of plastic has to stop and we can stop it, if we just change our habits. We know what to do so let’s do it!

In September’s tasks, we will explore ‘The Power of Plastic’:

Task A

We will look at how it gets everywhere and how the natural world is interacting with it – perhaps you have seen a seagull pulling plastic out of a bin and eating it, or a turtle trapped by a plastic 6-pack ring; you may have seen something on the beaches or streets where you live, or you may have seen pictures on the internet. Draw a picture of the image and write some sentences about it. Is the plastic useful to the animal?
