Lyrics (you sing only this chours)
We´re going green, green going green
We gonna take care of the earth, we´re going green
You can go green at your home or school
Reduce, reuse, recycle...


Mamma Mia...

Lyrics
We have threatened the world
since we don´t know when
So we made up our mind
this must come to an end.
Look at us now, will we ever learn?
We don´t know how, but we suddenly took control
there´s a fire within our soul...
Just one look and we can hear a bell ring
one more look and we´ll protect everything...
ooohh...ooohh...

Mamma Mia...here we go again
My, my, how can we convince  you
Mamma Mia, does it show again
My, my, just how much I need you.
Yes, the world´s broken hearted
blue since the the day we parted
why, why, can´t we join and save the world
Mamma Mia, now we really know

My, my, we can never let it go.

Doubling

To double a number is to repeat the same number 2 times. Example:














Doubling is related to  Multiplication. As you see in the chart above
2 times 1 is 2
2 times 2 is 4
2 times 3 is 6
2 times 4 is 8 and so on...
We also can represent this by
1 x 1 = 2 (2 times 1 is 2)
2 x 2 = 4  (2 times 2 is 4)
2 x 3 = 6 (2 times 3 is 6)
2 x 4 = 8 (2 times 4 is 8) and so on...


You can print the next worksheet and practice. 
Instruction: Count the red dots, repeat the quantity and complete with the numbers on the lines.


















You can also print the following worksheet

Endangered species in Chile


Endangered species is a population of animals which risks becoming extinct, because it is either low in number or  threatened by environmental or predatory changing parameters. In Chile, some species are in risk. Here you have some examples of endangered native species:


The Chilean guemal (Huemul) is a highly endangered species of deer found in the high, frigid mountains of Chile and Argentina. They are also sometimes called the Chilean huemul, South Andean huemul, Patagonia huemul and taruca. With compact bodies and short legs, this species is well-adapted to surviving in the rugged and difficult terrains of the Andes mountains. They have long been a symbol of Chile and are depicted on its national coat-of-arms.








As early as 1865, the Andean Mountain Cat  had been described to the scientific world, but it was only sometime in the 1980s that a real sighting happened. The Andean Mountain Cats have a very confined distribution, they are in arid grounds at Northern Chile and parts of Argentina.  In terms of their habitat, they only stay in rocky, arid territories, shrubberies and grass areas where rock piles abound. 





The short-tailed chinchilla  (which is also called various other names such as the Bolivian Chinchilla, the Peruvian Chinchilla or the Royal Chinchilla) is a species of rodent that can be found in the Andes Mountains in South America.
The Short-tailed Chinchilla is usually 16-38 cm in length, having a tiny tail that takes up almost none of that length (and from which it gets its name) along with a weight of about 1/2 kg to 1 kg (half a kilogram to a full kilogram). The Short-tailed Chinchilla likes to burrow down below shelter rocks, as in they prefer to burrow under the rocks to maintain a good and strong shelter and also typically inhabit particularly colder areas due to their excellent dense fur.
The monito del monte or "mountain monkey" (a marsupial rather than a monkey) is regarded by scientists as a living fossil, because it is the only survivivng member of a an otherwise extinct lineage dating back more than 40 million years. only slightly larger than a mouse, thisd littler marsupial is an excellent climber. The base of a grasping tail is capable of storing fat, which enables the animal to hibernate during the winter when food is scarce. The main threats facing the species are thought to be habitat loss and fragmentation.

Keeping the balance

Did you know that Ecology is the study of living things and how they interact with each other? All living species interact in different ways in nature. Watch the video to inquire more about this topic...




Our 6th Unit of Inquiry is: 
Sharing the Planet

Our Central Idea is 

Living things change and interact in different ways affecting natural balance.

Lines of Inquiry
    • Living organisms including humans depend on each other for survival.

    • Human activity impacts on native species and their habitats.

    • Community members and institutions protect native species.

What I know about the INTERACTION of animals, plants and elements?
What does INTERACTION mean?
What is my responsibility to the environment?

We will be also working on appreciation and enthusiasm to take care of our planet resources.

We invite you to find out more about this unit...
