How Much Plastic Do Fish Ingest?

How Much Plastic Do Fish Ingest? | Environmental Sustainability for schools | Scoop.it

Our world is becoming more and more plastic each year. From toys to packaging to gadgets and bags, it's not just that we produce more than 250 million tons each year around the world, but it's the fact that little of what we produce is ever recycled, so much of it ends up littering our planet. Specifically, the oceans have ended up becoming a giant dump for our plastic waste; some seven million tons end up in our oceans. A new study, according to The New York Times, seeks to calculate just how much of that plastic ends up in fish.

Why Empathy is the Key to a Kinder Society

Why Empathy is the Key to a Kinder Society | Environmental Sustainability for schools | Scoop.it

Ever felt dismay and a sense of hopelessness when you hear yet another story of animal abuse, domestic violence or teenage bullying? Why are people so cruel? Many researchers studying aggression and violence find the answers to their questions consistently fall back to a failure of empathy...

 Aggression and violence relate inversely to empathy. Those who abuse their children, for example, score low on measures of empathy...

So if empathy is the key, how do we teach empathy? Is education about issues pertaining to animals, the environment or social justice enough? Will telling children about puppy mills lead to their sharing the emotional state of a puppy mill dog?...

Venus Huang's curator insight, April 22, 2013 9:04 AM

 

 A Green Cross Australia is a website that was established to help children to adapt to changing climates, embrace sustainable living and build environmentally friendly communities.  This project draws particular attention to The Green Lane Diary, an interactive curriculum-linked education program designed by the environmental educators to help children to become aware of the stresses Earth confronts and how sustainable living can make a difference.

 

This website provides immense amount of resources for students to learn from and access to, with topics such as water, waste, energy and biodiversity. It is an immersive and interactive resource for students to learn about environmental problems and how our actions affect the environment, which in turn promotes positive thinking and action to maintain a sustainable environment.

 

This website provides vast opportunities for teachers to explore the ways to integrate The Green Lane Diary into their classroom curriculum programs. It includes a range of teaching ideas for classroom learning activities, assessment tasks and educational tools for each topic covered in the Green Lane Dairy. Classroom teachers can utilize such resource to encourage Stage 1 students to write a diary entry each day about how they performed something small or big to look after our Earth. By encouraging students to write simple literacy texts, students are given the opportunity to “plan and assess the development of explicit knowledge of how written language works” (Board of Studies, 2007, 19) and allows teachers to assess students’ writing skills and developments.
