Video review of Week 5

An Educator looks back at Week 5

Two of the educators, Tina and Neil, look back over some of their highlights of the week.

In the video, Tina and Neil mentioned several good discussions that have taken place on different steps this week including this one from Patricia Chirlei Santos, this one started by Damla Ceyhan and more. There are lots of great discussions on Step 5.3 so be sure to check them out and join in here.

On the topic of the Eden Project, you can read about Josefin’s visit here, and watch another interesting short video of the project here. You can find the story Neil mentioned about Denmark getting its first wild wolf pack in 200 years here, and the fantastic video Tina mentioned about Yellowstone National Park here.

Tina also mentioned some of the recordings you made, like this one from Thierry on permaculture, and this one from Angélica, a teacher, and this great discussion started by Alexandrina.

On the question of vocabulary, check out this great collection of more than fifty useful expressions for talking about the environment from American English at State. And this comprehensive collection of environment vocabulary, facts and figures is a really useful resource.

Finally, you can find the Footprint calculator that Tina mentioned, here.
