17th May - Actions for biodiversity

  • We are acting for biodiversity

    1 - Pollinator challenge : who is the winner ?


    The winning team is the team who has found the biggest number of different pollinators.

    More than 500 hundred photos taken by the students ! The challenge is achieved. 
    Special greetings to the Strawberry and Cranberry teams who took so many different pollinators !


    2 - Workshop : create a pollinating seed bomb

    presented by E.E. PR. SAINT PAUL, Cesson, FRANCE 

    Pollinators die because they have nothing to eat. We are going to prepare “pollinating bombs” full of seeds and spread them in the surroundings. The main interest of this is that the seeds are inside the bomb and therefore cannot be eaten by the birds. When conditions are fine, the seeds will germinate and pollinators will be fed thanks to us.

    Materials needed :
    - compost
    - clay (it can be clay powder)
    - seeds (from plants that pollinators like)
    - water


    Here is the result : many seed bombs created !

    3 - Vegetable and fruits art

    Three plants are the basis of human food  (rice, corn and wheat) but there is a variety of fruits and vegetables with all forms and shapes.
    Each student should bring to school a vegetable or a fruit.
    With the fruits and vegetables brought in each country :

    * build the letters of the BIODIVERSITY world (2 letters per country)
    Catalonia writes B and E
    Bulgaria writes I and R
    Italy writes O and S
    Romania writes D and I
    Finland writes I and T
    France writes V and Y

    Here are the pictures !

    * bring fruits and vegetables back home and cook something with it ! Upload your results in the padlet.
