School-wide PBL

SJS is currently working on a school-wide PBL about our carbon footprint.  Grades 5, 2, and 1 are answering the question, “How can SJS reduce our energy consumption?”  Grades 4, 3, and kindergarten are answering the question, “How can SJS reduce our waste?” Grades 6, 7, and 8 are answering the question, “How can SJS increase our use of renewable energy?”  All groups began their work by completing a chart of things they know about the topic and what they will need to find out.  The charts helped focus their learning.  As progress is made individual classes are sharing what they have learned with other classes.  First grade, kindergarten, and second grade have all completed their parts of this project.  They have each made very informative videos they have presented to the school.
