In their inquiry unit on how we share the planet, the 5th-grade students delved into the fascinating study of atmospheric weather and its evolution, aiming to gain a deeper understanding of climate change. During this process, they had the invaluable collaboration of one of our families. Eva, a mum of one of our students, is also a professor in the Department of Didactics of Experimental Sciences at the Faculty of Teaching at the University of Zaragoza. Her support has been crucial in our research cycle, providing us with a particularly motivating and enriching proposal: the creation of instruments to measure the weather using recycled materials.
To carry out this exciting initiative, our students proved to be authentic inquirers, applying their thinking and communication skills to build, test, and refine their own prototypes. This process not only fostered the development of their investigative skills but also promoted environmental awareness by reusing materials and contributing to meaningful learning. We are excited to share the results of this unique experience with all of you!
