Our most recent sustainability topic was transportation. We discussed all the ways we can transport ourselves, goods, and food. We came to the conclusion that transportation is nessesary. We can do our part to help the earth by buying local food that hasn’t been transported by big trucks and driving our cars only when we really need to. Walking, biking, and taking public transportation is the most sustainable way.
To extend our lesson, we took the train and bus to the aquarium on a field trip. We met at the MLK rail station and rode all the way north to Lakeline station. Then we caught the bus to take us to Anderson Mill to get to the aquarium. It was a long trip, but we had a great time looking out the windows, watching the city and people go by.
