From April 19th-23rd, teachers and students at Shanghai Community International School (SCIS) Pudong Lower School set out to create a week of activities, learning, projects, and fun geared around Earth Day in order to educate through sharing and spreading the importance of saving our planet.

The planning and preparation for this big week started months ago, when students and teachers recognized the importance of saving our most treasured resource of all: Earth. Led by the students and teachers from “The Green Team,” the school community rallied around to support this global awareness, making for a fantastic week. scis-earth-day-4s 

During the week, SCIS students were treated to a variety of engaging events, including a visit from the local non-profit environmental organization Greennovate, who shared ways to save our environment, a school-wide earth hour where all electricity was turned off, a visit by award-winning author Trevor Lai who discussed his book about saving the planet earth, and a fundraiser to help save the rainforests. Classrooms also got involved to help save the earth; students created solar ovens, made videos, tracked their waste impact, and pledged to change habits in order to take care of our environment.

The biggest event of the week was our Earth Day Rally, which included a teacher-staged reader’s theatre production of The Lorax by Dr. Seuss, Mandarin classes performing a skit about going green, a showcase of student posters, poems and essays focused on saving the earth, and an electrifying Recycled Fashion Show hosted by our 5th grade students on the creative reuse of thrown away material!

Everyone left the week with more ideas on how small changes can make big differences to our environment. It was an event full of education and fun for all ages!
