Year 2 at APP Learning About Our Environment

"We owe it to ourselves and to the next generation to conserve the environment so that we can bequeath our children a sustainable world that benefits all." - Wangari Maathai

Conservation begins with education about our environment. Something Year 2 have been exploring in their IPC topic about habitats and the world around us.

Students explored different habitats around the school, looking of plants and animals. Here are some photos of the students as they explored the habitats and some comments that they made about the environment.

Yu Chan used a magnifying glass to look carefully at the lily pads. He loved looking for small insects and mini beasts.

Samuel noticed the smaller parts of the flower and leaves. He searched for bugs and butterflies but could not find any.

On further exploring the BIS garden, Ryan and Leonora noted that in some areas there was litter on the ground, under the plants and in the pond. They thought that this was a shame as it made the area look untidy and less attractive. As a result, they decided to clean up the garden.

Jude thought that these plants would make good homes for ladybugs and smaller insects. He searched hard and took some smaples back to the classroom.

Marylinh and Carmel looked in a variety of habitats for small insects. They captured some in the special pots and observed them closely. The said that we need to look after our world so that plants and animals are happy.

Liam and Po noticed that in some areas of the playground, like the paving bricks, ants could hide and search for food. They followed a line of ants to try to locate where they were coming from and going to. The boys found out that ants can live above and below the ground.

Khanh Lan and Liza searched around the base of a large tree. They thought that a tree would make a good home for ants, birds, lizards, bugs, butterflies and beetles.

 

InSung, Daniel and Praneel thought that the trees around our school would be a good home for birds. But they could not find many birds in the garden area so they decided to set up some bird houses and feeders. We wonder if you can locate them?

Tram Anh and Peter were searching for life in the dry grass. Magnifying glasses helped them get right up close.

Nathan and Cat were impressed to see how well the banana trees were growing and were hopeful of harvesting some bananas in the future.

Rosa and Kimberley set up some butterfly feeders around the school and are waiting to see if they can encourage some more beautiful insects to our school.
