During the ‘Tread Lightly’ session we learnt about saving power and finding ways to use less electricity. We moved to every rotation for activities that had to do something with looking after the earth and its inhabitants, reducing waste, transport and being travelwise.
We looked at how many kilometres we walk from home to school and my result was 0.5 kms This shows that I don’t have to walk that far, I don’t need to use the car and leave a bad carbon footprint. Before that activity, we answered some questions that had to do with protecting the earth. Afterwards we moved on to the eco bike that was wired to lamps and other electronic goods. Then we moved on to learning about e-waste and how to dispose it safely.
I learnt a lot from this session. All of us in Room 10 made pledges to look after the Earth and protect it from pollution and global warming.
