On Wednesday, April 18, 2018, the 5th grade students at H. Clarke Powers School presented their knowledge and passion toward "Sharing the Planet". The Exhibition proved to be a journey of discovery and learning!
Students inquired about sharing the world's finite resources and how we have a responsibility to share these precious resources. The students came to a deep realization that humans, animals, and plants reside on a planet which owes its life to finite resources. Using their research skills, students gathered information about ways to protect our planet and how to share our finite resources and then created presentations to spread awareness to others. The students awoke to the fact that the future of the planet lay in their hands and in those who gained knowledge by listening to their Exhibition presentation.
With great enthusiasm and dedication, the students raised awareness for a plethora of different organizations to help make our world a better place. Furthermore, the students were able to share their advice and tips on how make a positive impact on our world through understanding that small actions made by many do make a huge impact on our environment. Students learned to "think globally, act locally".
As the IB Coordinator, I am extremely proud of our 5th graders who truly made a difference through their actions: learning ways to share the planet, spreading their knowledge to others, expressing their passion toward important topics, reflecting on their learning, and most importantly, growing as learners!
Way to go, Kodiaks!
