 Inquiry Questions

  • What is global warming?
  • Can we do something to help?
  • Why are the rainforests so important for the climate?
  • How can the endangered species be saved?
  • What does Greenpeace do?

We will learn about threats to the environment, eco-friendly habits, green-cars and recycling and more. We will read articles, have group discussions and do activities. The students will show their learning by oral presentations, summary of a chapter and by writing a fact sheet of endangered species. They will learn how to structure a text in a summary and in a fact sheet and get to know the importance of using linking words between paragraphs.

We will use google classroom and the planner on Lexby’s website to get detailed instructions and documents.
