Joe & Clement

Hi everyone, i'm making a post about when Joe & Clement came to our class and talked to us about all of those things. I hope what I say is pretty close to what happened...

On Tuesday the 2nd of June two students from S.I.F.E. (Students In Free Enterprise) called Joe and Clement came to our class to talk to us about sustainability and worm farming.

They brought an apple and chopped it up into pieces. They said that the whole apple was the earth, and this 3/4 of the earth is water so we can't grow anything there. Then the said that this 1/5 was desert (cold and hot desert) so you can't grow anything there. Then he held up this really little piece and said it was 1/32 of the earth and he said that is the only amount of space that we can grow crops on. I was pretty shocked to hear that only 1/32 of the earth is able to grow crops on.

After that we all went outside and they emptied our class rubbish bin and broke up the rubbish and put them into 3 piles. One pile was all of our food scraps, the other pile was the rubbish like plastic, chippy packs and things like that, and the third group was paper. They both said that if we kept our rubbish bin like this for the whole year we would be helping the environment a lot.

Thanks for coming to our class Joe & Clement!!!!!!!!!!
