By Sarah Newton, Grade 4/5 teacher at Begbie View Elementary
Grade 4/5 students at Begbie View Elementary School are concerned about the planet and how we are using its limited resources.
As part of a waste reduction campaign the students shared ideas about how to give gifts this holiday season without using and buying so much stuff.
With materials salvaged from the school, they made signs to ‘bomb’ our favourite local fish sculptures. Check out their ideas that range from consumable presents like jams and meals, to iTune cards and evenings out at local businesses.
The students really care about their planet and hope their ideas inspire others.
