A Battered Fish
The eating of fish and chips, maybe down at the beach with friends or on the front lawn with family, is somewhat of a culturally significant ritual for many Australians. The basis of sustainability education is to create a mental schema of our personal impacts we as individuals and as a species has on our environment. Last year our grade 4 teachers explored this concept with students. In doing so, created a shark, the ingredient in fish and chips other than potato, by paper-macheing f&c shop menus over a chicken wire skeleton. Young Keystone is now hanging from my classroom ceiling.
