TOC Zoo Update: Students learn responsible fishing practices.

This afternoon, students went to go fishing with Madame Monica.

She split the class into two groups: the responsible fishermen and the irresponsible ones. At every trip, the irresponsible fishermen caught more fish than the others.Then they counted how many fish were left in the ocean.  It was a good opportunity to do math. Plus, between every trip baby fish were born. Of course, there were more babies born with the responsible fishermen, as more grown-ups were left in the ocean. It was very exciting, especially for the irresponsible ones who made a lot of money…At the beginning only. Unfortunately at some point they realized their ocean was running out of fish. Indeed there were not enough adult fishanymore to renew the fish population and so couldn’t make money anymore. 
 
So they had to decide: fishing the same way or reducing the daily amount of fish caught. They committed to taking smaller numbers and accepting regulations and the irresponsible fishermen were able to save their jobs. Unfortunately, sometimes, changes come too late, and there is nothing that can be done to save species or jobs.
The responsible fishermen avoided issues like this. They can still go fishing and make money without being worried about their future.

The overfishing activity helps students to understand the consequences of overfishing our lakes and oceans and how humans have to use resources in a smarter way.
 

We hope that at the end of the zoo experience, students will understand that humans are a part of an ecosystem where million of living things coexist. We may not understand how important they are but we know that our happiness depends on living in equilibrium with nature. Life can be better for everyone and as individuals we have the power to make this happen. Our descendants are dreaming of being grateful to us.

Mme Hachimi Class Project – Livre de Léo

Here is a treat from the end of last school year (17-18), made by Madame Hachimi’s 1st grade class. Léo the Hedgehog is the mascot of our students’ penpals en France! Each student took him at home, made an activity with him and then wrote a small text about the time they shared together. They did a beautiful job; we hope you enjoy. | DOWNLOAD
