Let's start the campaign

Let's start the campaign!

At the end of this mission, you will have thought about what recycling routines you already do at home.

You will also work the listening and writing skills.

To introduce the topic, you are going to start doing a listening about "Recycling".

In the listening 'Eco Tips' , there is a short conversation in which Steven, a student from Costa Rica, talks with Rachel about how he tries to help the environment. 

There are also some questions to check your comprehension. You can answer these questions in pairs and then you can add the result in your learning diary. 

What do you already know about recycling?

Nowadays, our society is aware about the importance of recycling at all levels and places. Are you aware of this? Let's see:

  • What do you already do to recycle at home?
  • Do you recycle anything in your bedroom?
  • How many different  products or objects do you recycle?

Fortunately, you have heard about how important recycling is and you probably have some kind or recycling routine at home already.

Your final mission will be to create a digital poster or a short video about what do you already recycle at home and your recycling routines. The 'Rubric to assess a digital poster'  will help you know how to do a great job.

Your purpose in this mission is to know how much do you know about recycling and how much do you already recycle. 

Steps for your mission

Previous investigation

Some  websites will help you with your investigation and will give you some ideas about the possible objects or recycling routines that you can include in your presentation/video:  

What I already know about recycling

From the previous information, decide what recycling habits you already have and create a poster or a video with the following information:

  • List of objects & things you recycle at home
  • Photos of these objects
  • Have you got different recycling bins?
  • Who can use them? Do your relatives recycle too?
  • How often do you use them?

We can create a digital poster or if you prefer a video. In order to create the poster or the video you can choose from among some of the following digital tools

Your final mission will be to create that final poster. It must be atractive and clear. Remember to include at some pictures of the things you usually recycle. Don't forget that the 'Rubric to assess a digital poster'  will help you know how to do a great job.

Dissemination

You can also include the poster or video into your blog. 

Don't forget to identify the post with the tag "What I already know about recycling".

Your teacher can spread your post using the classroom's Twitter account. Before publishing it, you have to write it down for the teacher. Remember: 

  • You can use 140 characters.
  • You have to include the link to your post. 
  • Use the hashtag of the project: #projectrecycling

The 'Rubric to assess a tweet' will help you know how to do a great job. 

Before posting your post, ask your colleagues to check your work and make suggestions to improve it, make corrections... You must do the same task with some of your mates' outcomes, too. You don´t have to get discouraged because making mistakes is obviously a good way to learn!

With this task, you have focused on what you already knew about recycling and your recycling routines at home. This will be very useful for your final task. What's more, your poster or video could include, for example, some information about how your town/city recycles the waste its citizens produce. 

Learning Diary

After having reflected on these environmentally-friendly attitudes, it's time to continue with your Learning Diary.

Go back to the document you opened in the previous mission as a Learning Diary.

Below your previous writing, you have to create a new section entitled: 'Let's start the campaign!'.
