Elmlea pupils enjoyed a half-day session at Mojo learning about rivers. They enjoyed the cryptic orienteering over the Mojo land to find the “Fact” posts which included information about condensation, precipitation, and how this effects the water course.
The “Poison Well” activity required the children to transfer water with plastic guttering and included a scenario about contaminated water to highlight the importance of clean water to humans. They built dams and bridges across the Mojo stream and learned about how to make a water-tight shelter. The session brought a different dimension to classroom learning and encouraged a great deal of discussion, teamwork and excitement amongst the pupils.
