During this hands-on tour of the EcoHouse, we explore many facets of sustainable living such as recycling and composting, energy conservation, renewable energy, sustainable transportation, wise water use, and gardening.
Through storytelling and hands-on activities and games, we will explore “vermicomposting” and how different species of worms can assist us humans in creating some top-quality compost!
Students will explore the three R’s (reduce, reuse, recycle)! They will learn to separate waste, recycling and compost (and reduce the amount of waste they create) by participating in the Waste Race game.
Students will embark on a journey through the stages of the water cycle as a water droplet. In this activity students will describe the movement of water within the water cycle.
Students will explore the important relationship between healthy plants and healthy soil! Through games and roleplay, students will learn what seeds require in order to germinate, grow and how humans can impact this process
Students will engage in role playing games that allow a further understanding of the impact humans have on animal and plant habitats and communities as we focus on understanding life systems and the interconnection at play.
Green Venture has a full-day partnership program with The Museum of Steam and Technology featuring curriculum-linked tours.
