increasing sustainability awareness

In 4th grade students are expected to use scientific investigation and reasoning in order to make informed choices in the use and conservation of natural resources and reusing and recycling of materials such as paper, aluminum, glass, cans, and plastic as well as plan and implement descriptive investigations, including asking well-defined questions, making inferences, and selecting and using appropriate equipment or technology to answer his/her questions.  The use of podcasting in this CBL process will allow students to demonstrate comprehension of recycling, reducing, and reusing natural resources, while increasing awareness regarding sustainability.

In order for members of Gruene Kids as well as other students to create their own podcast, I have also uploaded (in a separate blog post) an instructional video which demonstrates how to navigate the technology.
