Day 1: Climate Story: Hello POLY!
In this speaking session, the mentor will sensitise the young minds and make them aware of the various environmental issues that we are facing and the appropriate Eco responsible behaviour we need to adopt. This will be done through a play way method, and she will weave a story based on two children’s books: “Poly Trap’ and ‘Hello earth
Brief description on the books:
‘POLY-TRAP’ is a simple story of a baby sea horse named Wiley, who is on his first day out into the sea with his mother. He gets curious about the sea creatures around him and she tells him that they would play a game of ‘I spy’. In this process, they see plenty of sea animals and come across man-made hazards that leave the sea creatures gasping for breath. They find a simple solution to let the creatures live freely.
“Hello Earth … here we come”, is about planet Earth, our one and only home that we all share. Over the years, we have accumulated a lot of waste that has endangered our environment. Today, however, we have one last chance to protect our planet before it is too late. The kids meet Ali and Een, two aliens who visit our planet Earth and encourage us to inculcate the habit of recycling and to do much more to preserve this amazing planet we all share.
