Drenched or dry collage

In this challenge we created a flood collage. We divided the class into groups and each group researched the following: the causes, effects, impacts and consequences of floods and droughts – with examples from South Africa. We looked at Durban, Cape Town, Johannesburg and Heidelberg. We found pictures and newspaper articles of droughts and floods around the country. We discovered that droughts and floods effect people AND the environment. And we were devastated to find out that WE are causing an increase in these extreme conditions through our actions on this planet (causing greenhouse gas emissions) - which cause global warming and climate change leading to extreme weather conditions like droughts and floods. We displayed this collage in our classroom for all the other classes to see.
