From July 11th to July 13th, CCIS held the summer camp 'Protecting the Earth'. In this unique summer camp, the children experienced first-hand the lively and meaningful courses of our school. Not only is the focus on academic learning, but students also learned concepts of environment protection. In this camp, students’ awareness of environmental protection, team cooperation and leadership skills have been developed and enhanced.
Starting with some ice-breaker games, the students got to know more about each other. After that, they found themselves sitting in a classroom full of garbage- what an unforgettable lesson! From watching a documentary, they learned about land pollution, air pollution, and plastic pollution. With the guidance of the teachers, the students began to think about what caused these pollutions and what are some other pollutions on the earth. Then the students classified the garbage that was in their midst.
Out of the classroom, the students had 'nature' art class in the natural surroundings. After understanding what the earth is suffering from pollution, they appreciated the blue sky, clear water, and beautiful mountains, which helped reinforced their thinking on why we should take action to protect our mother earth.
