We can all feel it getting hotter every year so it’s not just the ice caps that are melting! This book gets into a bit of the science of why climate change is real and what we can do about it! This book was probably the most engaging of all we did this week. It prompted a lively discussion among all the campers from my tiniest to the oldest! Everyone had something to contribute... from "Miss, yes my mummy always says I should turn off the TV if I'm not watching it!" to "Hmmm... MISS! If the ice caps are melting it could really cause floods in Trinidad?!?!? Well, we are all connected... so we might not see it immediately but yes. I had them vow to make one small change when they go home, so parents you can remind them I said that... and we'll see how it goes!
My little ones painted a pair of penguins set against a snowy background and my older campers had a blast painting polar bears wandering on a sunset evening.
Be a fly on the wall in our art room! Take a look at what we do, how we do it and the smiles that I get to see week after week :)
