Sylvaine ARNOULD-DROUILLY - Science Department (but really combining Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Math, French, Visual Arts)

"Objective 14: aquatic life and plastic art(s)!" for Gr7 students, a project on several weeks

Week of NOV 29 to DEC 03:
Trip to Ocean beach to set up the scientific protocol (1 morning):
- collection, counting and sorting of waste on the beach
- research of the origin of macro, meso and micro plastics found on the surface and buried
- identification of some meso-plastics

Note : Mesoplastics are large plastic particles usually defined as 5–10 mm in range.
Microplastics are small plastic fragments typically less than (<5mm) that are derived from the breakdown of macroplastics.

Activities will continue and could include:  

  • in Physics-chemistry: a debate on the theme "Should plastic be banned?"
  • in Biology: explain how human activity can modify the organization and functioning ofecosystems (the place of plastic in the food chain, etc.)
  • in Mathematics: use the data collected in the field to calculate the number and mass of the mass of plastic waste on Ocean Beach (work on proportionality, graphs ...)
  • in Visual arts (to be confirmed): design of a collective work (by class) valorizing the plastic waste collected in the field (or at the LFSF) and raising awareness about this pollution (exhibition in the patio)
    Possible extension: participation in the "Plastic Arts for the Ocean" contest
  • in French: making a word cloud on the concept of over-tourism and its consequences to share with other students

Final production (tbc):
An exhibition in the patio for the other students of the LFSF to raise awareness on the problem of aquatic pollution by plastic presenting :

  • the collective artistic works
  • the slogans
  • the results of the scientific approach implemented in the field
