Game-based learning & activities in pollution e-book, Greece

 The following e-book aims at raising the awareness of our students to the problem of environmental pollution. The approach to the subject was through playful game-base learning. In this way, the students became actively motivated to learn and tried to provide solutions to the problem of the pollution of the planet.

based learning with videos

 In our homes, technology is now part of the furniture. Just think about the position of the TV in the living room, rather than the dishwasher integrated in the kitchen or the washing machine positioned under the sink in the bathroom, when there is no real laundry room. The very location of these technological tools was certainly a topic of discussion and comparison between parents, grandparents, uncles and friends.
Generally at home we also use other devices such as computers, tablets or smartphones that in addition to furniture have also changed our daily habits and our family relationships.
Let's not forget that technology has also changed the way we travel and our safety in cities, on the road and in the car. Thanks to electricity, the Internet, our bodies and our relationships live and communicate in new environments and with different times from the past.
It is difficult to think that this process of change has not also affected the school and in particular the primary school attended by our children. It is difficult to imagine that the new ways in which we treat and share information today thanks to the network are not exploited also to study and to promote meaningful learning through a process guided by the professionalism that teachers hold in the pedagogical field.
Technology can even represent a third teacher, or an additional resource in the classroom, able to support and help our children in their study, integrating into a person's educational and training project what was once represented by the simple space and materials used in the school game, as claimed by Loris Malaguzzi, teacher and pedagogist. We also think only of how useful a computer or tablet can be for a child with specific learning disabilities (SLD), when a software can transform a long text to be read into a speech synthesis to listen to, rather than a frontal speech by the teacher in a concept map or in an infographic, or an evocative image to share with the students who can also use it at home to study.
New technologies in the classroom allow you to carry out simulations, to travel and orient yourself, to find information from different sources and compare them, to write texts in a cooperative way, to watch videotutorials and carry out interactive exercises, i.e. they allow us to experiment authentic and dynamic tasks, experiences that require students to actively involve themselves using tools that are familiar to them.
The technology used in the study of some disciplines is therefore able to integrate the experience of school learning and offer a starting block to arrive at meaningful knowledge. Who knows how many times Thomas Edison will have tried to burn tungsten wires before figuring out which materials to use to build a light bulb and then get to the theory and design of a tool to make light!

Certainly technology can only improve learning if it helps effective teaching strategies, i.e. when it allows to increase the time dedicated to learning and exercise, when it supports collaboration or when it compensates for specific learning difficulties. We are talking, of course, about one tool among many and it must not become the only tool used to develop skills, collaborative attitude and knowledge, but I do not think that the Italian primary school is running the risk of "technologizing" learning, indeed sector surveys continue to describe technology as a means that occupies a small part of school time, so much so that in some realities it still enters the field for only one or two hours of laboratory a week. Moreover, all too often in primary school the use made of it is still that of the study of information technology as an end in itself, detached from other disciplines.  An example who videos entry in the didactic time as the storytelling we have created with the classical fairy tale TRESURE ISLAND.

lack and energy source

what are we going to do to educate
about energy savings?
 The intent is to offer an empirical training
experience, which respecting the real
possibilities of learning of the target and
individuals, favors the development of skills and behaviors that are related to basis of knowledge and scientific doing1 and supports
the maturation of ecological thinking, starting
from kindergarten.

Art in Ran Bosilek School, Bulgaria

 
Spring is coming
Students created spring decorations for school using clippings of old styrofoam.
 250 tulips made of styrofoam colored the school.  Our students prove that beautiful presents may be done by ordinary and unnecessary things and may bring a lot of happiness.  These beautiful tulips made by Ran Bosilek students in their art classes bring happiness to two kindergartens in Gabrovo. 




Artdumping

Recycling as we know is waste processing in material, which the industry may use for producing new materials or products. 
Recently modern art was shown a new technique called artdump. You may know that dump in English is litter. Many artists, sculptors, and other craftsmen create art with recycled materials. 
This new trend becomes more famous because of the idea of protecting nature. 
Instead of destroying tons of waste and polluting the atmosphere, artists made art and even new pieces of jewelry and accessories.
This new technique was interesting for us and motivated our students and teachers to create something new using recycling. 


 

Flower for mum
Students took part in a workshop on composting and planting flowers.     
In this activity Mrs. Miteva, director of Ran Bosilek School spoke about usage of biological waste – that we feed the soil , the process of composting and how to use the product of composting.
Students from first grade learned how to plant flowers and to care about them at home. They learned also different kinds of soils and their own role in protecting the nature clean. 


Birdhouses in Ran Bosilek Schoolyard
Students concerned about birds who stay in Gabrovo during the whole winter made cozy wooden birdhouses.
These birdhouses were made of wood and old folders, which were used as a roof. 
    Our young nature protectors were in a hurry to put grains in wooden houses for their future inhabitants.
   Our students were really happy to see their birdhouses put on trees in front of our school. They promise often to feed the birds and if it’s needed to care for them. 



 


Ran Bosilek School, Bulgaria  

Our aim: To stop environmental destruction and to build a future, in which people live in harmony with nature. 

 Ecology through children’s eyes- first grade from Ran Bosilek School, Bulgaria
Topic: “Humans – pollute or protect the nature”

According to young students, the basic pollutants are heating by burning wood, coal and waste, road traffic, and industry.  


Celebrating the carnival with recyclable materials at the 1st Primary School of Chios

 
On Friday 4th March 2022 we celebrated the Carnival at the 1st Primary School   in a different way. In accordance with the Erasmus environmental programme in which our school is taking part, we wanted to get the message across that nothing goes to waste, but it is reused instead. That is why we improvised and designed our own carnival costumes out of recyclable materials. Our pupils' families contributed a lot towards this aim. Fancy costumes were created with a lot of imagination and love for the environment. Recyclable materials like plastic bags, straws, cardboard boxes, cardboard, napkins, newspapers, cds, lids, plastic bottles, plastic glasses, coffee filters, corks, bubble wrap, aluminum foil, screws, styrofoam, string, nets, wooden spoons, were all turned into imaginative carnival costumes. A big catwalk was set up in our school yard and we all clapped at this unique “fashion show”. After that, we paraded in Aplotaria street and visited the City Hall, where we were met with a warm welcome by Mr Georgios Belegris, Vice Mayor for Finance and Mr Elias Vorrias, Director of Design and Development in Waste Management company of Chios County. They congratulated us on our initiative and effort!
We wish we are all in good health and celebrate next year too. 


 

Aquaponics in 1st Primary School of Chios💦🌞🌼🌏

 In the back garden of our school we have built an aquaponics system . Aquaponics is an innovative system of farming, that looks a lot like hydroponics, only that the food for the plants is produced directly by the fish which are bred in the water tank and not with added fertilizers (as it is done in hydroponics). Using this method we planted our lettuce!

 Christmas🎄🎅🏻🎁 crafts  with eco-friendly materials 

Our established Christmas bazaar has already began for this year but it has adopted a greener attitude. Our school has made this year’s festivities greener since we are taking part both  in an envrinmental European Erasmus programme and in the national programme Sustainable Greek School.

Our pupils used their imagination and love for nature and, under their teachers, created crafts out of recycleable  and  natural materials, which do not affect  the environment negatively. The money which has been collected will be used for the end-of-the-school-year trip of the sixth grade and for charities.

Christmas wishes exchange🎄🎅🏻🤶🏻🎁

Christmas is round the corner and the pupils of the sixth grade sent their season greetings to our friends in Europe their own way.
On Thursday 16th December our pupils sang the carols both in Greek and English under Mrs Vicky Malteza znd Mr Dimitris Chatzigiannakis. They also exchanges wishes with the pupils in Italy, Boulgaria, Poland and Turkey, who are our Erasmus partners. Our pupils listened to their pupils singing and clapped enthusiastically. We might not have understood all the words they used, but we definitely realized that love and friendship know no boundaries! Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to everyone!

1st PRIMARY SCHOOL OF CHIOS - ENGLISH CLASS 
EXPERIMENT ON SOIL EROSION
Teacher: Vicky Malteza 

 

 
•            During our English classes we watched a number of videos on what soil erosion is, what causes it and how it is related to deforestation.
•            The children enthusiastically collected and set the materials and conducted an experiment on soil erosion.
•            We had three containers, one with soil only, one with soil and mulch and the third one with soil and plants.
•            We watered each container with the same amount of water and observed the erosion of the soil in each of the three containers.
•            We came to the conclusion that the water which comes out of the third container with the plants is the clearest because the roots of the plants hold the soil together and prevent its erosion.

(in the video a pupil of the sixth grade is reading about the experiment and our observations)


During the Physical Educations classes in the playground, Mrs Mary Lavida and Mr Charalampos Tsakos, dealt with endangered species in a uniquely playful way!


We asked the pupils to bring stuffed animal toys from home. We asked them to choose animals that are in danger.
We played a game in the playground.
There were two teams each standing opposite one another. In the middle the PE teacher put the animal that is in danger. All the kids of team A represent one number from 1 to as many as the kids are. The same numbers are given to the kids in team B. When the teacher shouts out a number, two kids one from each team run to the center to reach for the animal. Whoever gets it first, takes it to their team. The winning team is the one that collects the most animals.
The kids were all thrilled to play the game and enthusiastically brought more than one stuffed animals to school.

 


 
As part of the implementation of the Erasmus + program "Be friend with nature", the students of 5th and 6th class taught French, created work plans, two posters and digital games on deforestation and endangered species . Below you can see the students' work.

 As part of our Erasmus programme Be Friend with Nature, the 1st Primary School of Chios «Ioannis Pateras» in Greece celebrated Erasmus Days on Friday 15th October 2021.
The pupils of the 4th and 5th grade of our school helped clean up our town beach. We
went to the beach on foot, carried our banner and picket signs and cleaned two beaches in town thoroughly. We talked about the importance of contributing towards a clean environment in the area we live. We made land art by using beach stones to write ERASMUS DAY on the sand!
What a great day it was! We truly enjoyed ourselves and took a lot of photos!!!! 


Plastic lids delivery Covid-19 hasn’t stopped our effort for a clean planet and in the framework of our participation in the Erasmus+ programme “Be friend with nature” we collected, during this difficult school year, 13 bags of plastic lids (about 70 kilos) and we delivered them to the “Chios Union of people with Multiple Sclerosis” to buy a wheeling chair.

Medea’s bad weather passing over our island

During the last few days, there were adverse weather conditions in Greece, as well as in Chios. 

Our greenhouse, with summer plants (tomatoes and zucchini), managed to copy with the very low temperature. 

Our tomatoes continued blossoming, 

while there was a slight growth in a zucchini. 

Fortunately, the strong wind didn’t do any harm to the nylon walls of our greenhouse and its functionality remained the same.

Nothing is for dumping

Dumping our clothes in a common bin contributes to environmental pollution. This is why it is good to reuse our garments. Re-use is an effective ecological method and can be implemented in different ways. Either by using our own clothes, like B  class did by making and decorating  boxes for our easter bazaar out of them. Either by offering them to people who are in need. That is the reason why we gathered jackets and T-shirts, out of use, and offered them to refugees’ children who need them more. The coordinator of Refugees Primary Education in the Refugees Reception Centre came to our school and delivered them.
In a planet that has been under tremendous interventions, reusing of first materials is of outmost importance.

Plastic lids delivery

Covid-19 hasn’t stopped our effort for a clean planet and in the framework of our participation in the Erasmus+ programme “Be friend with nature” we collected, during our summer holidays, 15 bags of plastic lids (about 75 kilos) and we delivered them to the “Chios Union of people with Multiple Sclerosis” to buy a wheeling chair.

Carnival day at school

 

Three weeks before “Clean / Shrove Monday”, which is the beginning of the 40 days Lent before Easter according to the Orthodox Church, the tradition of “Apokries” takes place all over Greece. During these days people are dressed up in fancy costumes, have carnival parties, dance and sing traditional and popular songs. This custom goes back to Ancient Greece when there were celebrations at this time of year to commemorate the end of winter and the coming of spring associated with the worship of Dionysos, the God of Wine and Feast. 

So a carnival party took place in our school on the last working day before the Lent and the children dressed up, sang and danced traditional dances, such as “gaitanaki”, and had lots of fun! 



A visit to Mylonadis' estate, collection of citrus fruit and marmelade making

A visit to Mylonadis' estate and collection of citrus fruit

On February 12th, the 5th and 6th grade of 1st Primary school of Chios visited Mylonadis' estate in Kampos. Mr. Dimis Mylonadis welcomed them  into his estate. The children were impressed by the renewed water crane and the unique water tank open to public. Then Mr Mylonadis allowed young pupils to collect oranges, lemons and mandarins. Part of the citrus fruit were then used to make marmelade in school by the help of Mrs. Evangelia Misailidou and Mrs. Stella Couridou. The two ladies explained us the procedure and guided us in making a tasty citrus fruit jam. In the end, all the pupils tastied  it on fresh bread.
The recipe for one dose is the following: 


Citrus fruit marmelade

Ingredients
·         4 oranges
·         4 mandarins
·         2 lemons
·         1 pergamott
Recipe
1. Wash and grate the surface of the fruit, to reduce the bitter taste.
2. Remove the citrus fruit peels and boil them for 10 minutes. Change the water and repeat twice. Keep some peels and cut them into very small pieces.
3. In a separate saucepan  boil the inner part of the fruit for 20 min, after having removed the hard parts as well as their stones.
4. Put the boiled peels as well as the inner part of the fruit into a mixer and mashed it.
5. In a different saucepan put the mashed citrus fruit. For one cup of citrus puree add two cups of sugar. Furthermore, put in the puree small parts of citrus peels. Boil the mixture for 20 min in low temperature, stiring it until it's ready.
6. As soon as the marmelade is done, place it into sterilized jars. Seal them lid and turn it upside down to remove the air.
Keep it into environmental temperature until its opening. Then, keep it into fridge for as long as we desire.

The pupils of 5th and 6th grades of our school, participated in a beautiful act of voluntarism, on Wednesday February 12th . In cooperation with the Chios Directorate of Forests they went on a planting expedition in the area of Panagia Voithia. The Forester, Mr. Flioukas talked us about the spontaneous natural growth of our island, the benefits of the forest to our lives and the dangers it faces daily. He gave instructions for planting saplings (pinetrees, cypresses, lilacs), that the Directorate of forests gave us. They also offered us the appropriate equipment and led us during the whole procedure. The activity took place in the framework of the European programme Erasmus + "Be friends with nature", that our school carries out.

Erasmus corner in 1st primary school of Chios

The 1st Primary School of Chios participates in the two-year European Erasmus programme with the title “Be-friend with nature” for the years 2019 – 2021. In this programme four more schools take part: Italy, Turkey, Bulgaria and Poland. The collaboration between European Schools has greatly contributed to the acquaintance with other civilizations, different cultures and different people. Through the communication and exchange of ideas both teachers and students are undoubtedly of great benefit. 
The aim of the programme “Be- friend with nature” is the improvement of the perception and enrichment of knowledge for both students and teachers in relation to the global environmental issues. To be more specific, climate change, environmental pollution, recycling, deforestation and species in extinction will be the main points of the programme. Apart from the adaptation of an active environmental behavior, teachers will exchange innovative teaching approaches and pupils will improve their abilities in the use of New Technologies as well as the English language, which is the official language of the programme. 
Additionally, a beautiful “Erasmus corner” has been created in the reception hall of our school, where all projects and pictures of our actions will be exhibited. 
This programme is totally funded by the European Committee and as a National Unit of Coordination for Greece is the State Scholarships Foundation.  
 


EVENTS AND ACTIVITIES IN OUR SCHOOL


Plastic lids delivery

In our effort for a "clean" planet and in the framework of our participation in the Erasmus+ programme "Be friend with nature" we collected fourteen bags of plastic lids (about 70 kilos) and we delivered them to the Chios Union of people with Multiple Sclerosis to buy a wheeling chair.
The previous years all the plastic lids gathered were given to one of our fellow citizens to buy a hospital bed necessary for his everyday life.


Christmas bazaar

Christmas holidays are near and we have prepared our annual Christmas bazaar. We made natural and pure wax hand creams, candles from recycled materials, little raindeer ornaments from pieces of wood and headbands made of remaining pieces of cloth. We also had beautiful poinsettias, the traditional Christmas flower.

To celebrate the talent and enthusiasm of children Turkish Airlines is going to organize an exciting award ceremony. Children would be awarded at the event and would win tickets to their dream cities. 
 Children have many dreams and their imagination has no limits , that is why their pictures are colorful , full with ideas. Their drawings presented one of their dreamed destination at which and Turkish Airlines are flying to. Children drawings also need to have the logo of the company.
 Cities , the students dreamed for are different , but united by the idea for cleanliness and greenery. If we want the work of the green part of the city to be easier to filter the air then we need the industrial to be more ecological . There will not exist a danger for our lives and for our nature , no matter the number of industrial enterprises.

We learn how to Be  friend with nature 

Students from an Bosilek School took part in 4th national school competition "Rila National Park - known and unknown" . 🏔
 The competition aims are : 
 - Popularization of unique, rare and endangered wildlife spaces of nature in Rila National Park.
 - Developing ecological awareness and activating students' critical thinking .
 - Increasing the interest of young people about ecological problems and environmental protection. 
 - Forming active citizen behavior and deep feeling of responsibility for protecting the nature and wildlife spaces in the Park. 
 Among the three national parks in Bulgaria , Rila is the largest one. The highest peak in Balkan peninsula - Musala , 2925m., is situated in Rila . The average high of the peaks is around 2700 m. , as peak Malyovitsa is 2729m.🏔
 Mountain hiking teaches children to be more patient , endurance and to help each other . But also teaches them to respect and protect the Mother Nature. According to this , we can say that our students have environmental awareness.
 All participants in competition say that they will return to hike Musala next summer , too. Students believe that while all of us enjoying the nature , we need to protect its ecological balance . 
 Be friend with nature ! 🍃

There is only one way to be kind and this is to be kind .
 What is actually kindness ?
 It is like to say a good word , to say just thank you , to help someone or to support , or inspire a person. Kindness is just to plant a flower , to protect and keep care for nature.
 We decided to ennoble and clean our school area . The key of healthy life is to keep surroundings clean.
 Our little students planted500 tulip bulbs which were donated by Gabrovo Municipality.
 Once the tulips grow , ,they would enjoy us with their beauty . Their smell would bring us the spirit of happiness.
 Let's give a chance to nature by :
 - Planting even one single flower.
 - Wasting a little or even none all around.
 - Learning more about better life living .
 - Engaging more people in environmental protection.
 - Give away goodness every day , that is the way we can be friends with nature .
 

 Children wish their school to be more pleasant , more ecological and greener , as they promise to keep care for flowers they have already planted.
 Keeping our school green and clean , we study , create and play without worries about our health .✌️

A nature inspiration 

Autumn leaves inspired us and we decided to make many interesting and original art projects. The topic of discussion with children was about how humans change the environment. There were examples based on residential complex building, new roads, the deforestation, planting new cultivated plants in soils where wildlife plants had grew before. We commented that the change of native habitat leads to the extinction of animals or their movement to another place. 
 All species of hedgehogs in Bulgaria are endangered.

Students from Ran Bosilek School did their own projects about environmental awareness. Developing an ecological culture in students is necessary for early years education. We need to think about solving ecological problems on Earth. Firstly we have to start thinking for our country, or even for our city, the street where we live,our home,our school.
 Fourth-graders worked very hard and with their imagination created great projects. Original student's ideas showed their compassion about all negative acts humans did and infusion on nature.
 Students promised that they would do everything they can to turn the Earth into Heaven!🍃
