Yesterday we started our new unit called ‘Fair Go’. To get us thinking about consumer and producer rights and responsibilities we began by making bubbles. What is the connection? Well, first each group had to earn enough money by picking up rubbish around the school to purchase the equipment needed to make the largest bubble – there was a prize up for grabs.
However only 4 out of 6 groups were able to make bubbles. This was because 2 groups had purchased faulty goods – unfortunately Mrs Campbell’s shop had a sign that said ‘No refunds or returns’ so they could do nothing about it. We had a lot of fun trying to create the bubbles and then had a very good discussion about how this experience related to our new topic. Here are some photos of our experience.
