Social Studies in Year 7

Students in Year 7 Social Studies have been considering sustainability in Abu Dhabi and what the future of Abu Dhabi’s buildings might be like as a result. This lesson covered elements of STEAM such as:

Science – renewable energy forms
Technology – buildings and new energy forms
Engineering – design and architecture of the future
Arts – the poster work itself and presentation
Math – the only element missing!

Students considered all elements of sustainability; environmental, social and economical, and were asked to design buildings that were aesthetically pleasing and considered the future of Abu Dhabi.

All of the labels on the images are there to explain why the features are sustainable.
