introduction and group work
Yesterday was the World Environment Day. We organized a workshop at Chelsea International Academy. The workshop started with Savaş talking about TUDE and You.com. After the introduction, group work was done together with the students. The group work was to find solutions to the “waste problems at home” using the concept of 5R (recycle, reuse, reduce, refuse, rethink). Students share their solutions and ideas with us and with other friends.
First, Shrija taught to make pencil holder from newspaper spokes.While Shrija was teaching a pencil holder and Ina Deren, Savaş, Dragos, Sanjay and Megha helped students. The first session was quite efficient. Most of the students did the product successfully.
The school’s environmental lesson teacher also joined us from the first session.
We ate lunch at school together with students.
Energies game is called “Ski in Summer”. The game was played by Dragoş. The students were quite entertained.
The aim of the second session was to teach students how to bowl from newspapers. The second session was held by Deren. As with the first session, most of the students have made nice bowls.
After the second session was over, Dragoş played a short game with the students. In the game, students was use the bowls they made in second session.
