Final Blog Post

Final Blog

Hi, this is our last blog. We hope you enjoy!

Action Plan
Link to our action plan.

After we researched and found all the information that we needed, we thought about what
we can take action too. Some of the actions we decided to take and will keep doing it is:
  • Take the pledge and support organisations such as, WWF etc.

  • Educate our parents and other children

  • Download palm oil apps and share them with adults who go shopping so they know which products contain unsustainable palm oil and sustainable palm oil.

Even though Exhibition is over we will still continue to take these actions. We would also appreciate it if you can take these actions too. Let’s make the world the best planet EVER!

Exhibition Group Reflection
Our Exhibition went really well and we were really successful. We felt really good doing it because we did so much work towards it. The Exhibition night, when our parents came, went really fast, like it hardly happened. The next day when we presented the whole day was really tiring! At first, it was fine, but after we had to keep repeating our presentation over and over again, it got really boring! But it was worth it because we shared our thinking with lots of people from our school about palm oil. SAIS and another school also came to hear our presentations. We think that Exhibition was an amazing experience, to work together and take action for a sustainable future.

Thinking about Palm Oil
Our groups big thinking about palm oil is that palm oil is a big problem because it causes deforestation etc., but it is a very efficient crop which helps us in everyday life. We think that we should not stop using palm oil, but to use it in moderation.

Advice for Exhibition
Some tips for exhibition is ……
1.When you are making (Vlogs) you should always make the topic that you want to show people about strong and have good information to support your thinking.
2.When you are making a vlog you should always make the vlog interesting with images and props because that will engage the reader to learn more. Vlogs are on your Blog but a Vlog is a video on your site.
3.When you are making a poster you should think about (CARP) C stands for contrast,A starts for alignment,R stands for repetition,P stands for proximity. There should normally only be 3 to 4 colours so it is easy for the reader to read.When you are putting your information on your board then you should make is really big to read from far away.
When you are adding things to your board you should try to have some props or brochures for the guests so they can learn more.

In conclusion, this is some of the important things we would take away. Thank You, everyone, who has been reading our blog posts, we really appreciate it. This is our last blog post, but we may still post occasionally and talk about how we are doing with our action plan. Thank you.
