Toyologist Training for K-6 Students
The Ecobots have arrived from a far planet. We are looking for your best toys! We like toys that are good for you and good for the environment. Can you help us study your toys?
The Ecobot Experience is an inquiry based educational program that allows students to analyze and evaluate the choices they make regarding the types of toys they play with. Students are encouraged to think about questions surrounding their toys, questions like: Where will this toy go after I’m doing playing with it? How long will this toy last? How active does this toy make me? These questions lead students to consider and implement the core concepts of Sustainability and responsible decision making related to consumer choices and lifestyle choices.
Toyolgists Learn To:
- Ask questions.
- Evaluate toys.
- Make informed decisions.
- Choose toys that make them active.
- Take care of the environment.
