BMSA WISE Way in the Lunchroom

  • Plastic pollution on a beach Students in Mrs. LeGault's Third Grade class wondered why BMSA uses plastic in the lunchroom.

    They began their W.I.S.E Way investigation wondering about plastic--what it is, why we use it, and how it affects our world.

    The students identified experts and interviewed them to seek understanding.

    The class then shared their learning with one another and had more questions about what they could do to limit the amount of plastic in their world.

    Students took their knowledge home and applied it to their plastic use in their homes. They then created a video to share their plastic knowledge with the school to be agents of change.
