BOLD TEACHING. EXCEPTIONAL LEARNING.

Earth Day

Earth Day at Anton Bruckner International School

"We do need hope, of course, we do. But the one thing we need more than hope is action. Once we start to act, hope is everywhere.” - Greta Thunberg

At ABIS we celebrated Earth Day on April 28th and  29th with a focus on water.

785 million people in the world live without clean water.
That’s nearly 1 in 10 people worldwide. The majority live in isolated rural areas and spend hours every day walking to collect water for their family. Not only does walking for water keep children out of school or take up time that parents could be used to earn money, but the water often carries diseases that can make everyone sick.
But access to clean water means education, income, and health – especially for women and kids.

In the PYP, each class or year group worked on an age-appropriate activity, all MYP classes tried to step into the shoes of kids, who have to carry water every day.

Additionally, we kindly asked every ABIS student to donate 1 euro (more was possible). ABIS will donate the money to the following non-profit organization: www.charitywater.org and 100% of our donation bring clean water to people in need.

ELC

For Earth Day in the ELC we were talking about why water is so precious and what we need water for. We created our own water filter with materials from the playground and inquired how we can change dirty to clean water! We also enjoyed some fun water Art! Thanks to all the parents for the donations!

PYP

PYP1: A whole day of activities and stories based around the water

PYP2: Activities linked to deforestation, planting seeds

PYP3: Creating an action plan for a mindful day to take care of the Earth

PYP4: A day without electricity

PYP5: Outdoor reading and activities, investigate Google Earth

MYP

Predict how much water in specific situations we need to collect.

Real life scenarios, from different countries where problems to collect water are present. Students had to fetch the water from Danube on their own and along the way they were challenged or helped with different activities in order to get a clearer understanding of how some people around the globe deal with water needs.

Other activities included math, english and science. For students that managed to do the right prediction, the school gave prizes (fresh fruit). The water that was collected will be used to water the flowers in the school.
