This fall, as our annual fund raiser for charity, my class invited students and staff at our school to donate a two-dollar coin (the one with the Polar Bears on it) in support of Polar Bear conservation, and come to school dressed as a favourite book character.
We used our media literacy skills to promote our fund-raiser, via the school newsletter, flyers, announcements and mini-posters:
Mrs. Black provided our class with an extra incentive to participate. She pledged to donate a dollar for each student in our class that brought in a donation. Twenty-three of us took up her challenge!
We estimate that about 30% of the school population participated in our event. We collected $168.25 in donations. Our money will help World Wildlife Fund Canada protect habitat and conduct research to ensure a future for Polar Bears in Canada.
These pictures show members of our class dressed up as favourite book characters, plus "Adopt a Polar Bear" items from World Wildlife Fund Canada. The bear is our new class mascot. We named him "Snowball!"
On behalf of the bears, we want to thank everyone who participated in our event!
