Do you know where fish fingers come from? We do! We watched a YouTube video that took us through the processes fish fingers go through to get to our tables.
Afterwards we explained the process using diagrams or words, then dictating our ideas to Ms Leah.
Siena: Fish fingers start out as tiny little eggs. They grow into big fish and are fished out of the water. They take the fish to a factory in the ship. They wash them and cut them.They cut the fish, remove the skin and fry the fish. They pack it in a box.
They go back to shore and deliver the fish to a truck. The truck delivers the fish fingers to a shop.
You buy it from the shop. You go home, cook it and eat it. (Fact: People who get the fish get money)
Why do you think the message 'Change the world' keeps coming up?
Siena: The girl wastes a lot of food. The food goes to the trash can. Then it goes to the dump. If everybody takes a car to the shop, smoke comes.
Pieter: This fish is swimming in the ocean. Then a man comes with a net and catches it. Then they kill the fish. Then it goes to the factory. Then it goes to the truck. Then it goes to the shop. Then a little girl and her mom buy it. Then they go home with it and cook it. Then the mom puts the food on the plate. Then she eats two of them. Then she pushes the rest away and the mom throws it away. Then the food goes to the dump.
Problem: Then there are less animals and you don't finish them off and maybe the animal will become extinct. Then no more food comes, because food comes from animals and plants. That causes a sick Earth.
Griff: A man catches a fish on a boat. He gives it to another man. The other man gives it to the cook. The cook chops it into small pieces and puts the pieces in bread crumbs. He delivers it to the supermarket. And a lady buys the fish fingers and she takes it home in her car. And gives it to her daughter. And she gives her fish fingers and fries. And the daughter only eats the french fries. And she throws the fish in the garbage.
Problem: And that's bad, because they wasted the fish for nothing. People killed the living fish and it just got thrown in the garbage.
Minzhe: We cannot waste food. We bought fish fingers from supermarket.
Teddy: First somebody fished. And then they cut it. Then a truck takes it to a shopping mall. And then somebody buys it.
Problem: And then the problem is somebody throws it away. And then you waste food for nothing. Someone fished for fish and killed it. Then somebody made it for nothing.
Frankie: Some fishermen got some fish and put it in the factory. Then they put it into some trucks and put it into a shop. One family just went to take some fish fingers. Then they eat it and put it in the garbage can. That is wasting food-not good.
Problem: If you buys it and don't eat it, it's wasting. Wasting is a bad thing, because if people got a toy and wanted it and then they didn't play with it and put it in the garbage, it's not good. Like things are hard to do, like a car. It's hard to make so the owner says, "I don't want it." It's hard to make, so it's bad.
Emanie: The fish went to the sea. People take the fish in the sea. The people cut the fish. They send it to the supermarket. Someone buys it. Then they went to the car. And then they eat it. But then the girl was not eating it. So then the mom threw it away.
Problem: The girl was wasting food and people buy it so they can eat.
Adam: The person gets a fish in a boat. Then they go to land and get a car and take the fish. It goes to a factory to make the stuff into fish stuff. And they cut the scales off. Then they put it in the oven and make the fish fingers. They put it in a box. Then they put in a shop. Then some people drive to the shop and buy the fish fingers. Then they cook it. Then the mom gives it to the kid. And the kid ate a little so the mom had to throw it.
Problem: Don't throw the food. It's wasting. Don't throw the fish fingers. There will be no fish on the planet.
Johnny: So they get a boat and catch the fish. And then they bring the fish to the factory. The factory people will cut the fish and cut off the eyes and then put the fish in a box. And then they put the fish in a box. And then they give it to the people who work the cranes. They give it to the trucks and the trucks give it to the supermarkets. And then a lady goes to the supermarket and buys it. And she drives in a car home.
Problem: If you eat animals all the time, there won't be any animals left. And if you waste food and keep doing it every time, then you won't have any energy and you won't be able to do things.
Lucy: They get the fish and go to a place and cut it up. Then it goes in boxes. And it gets sent to different shopping malls.
Problem: Wasting fish is not good. Some people in this world don't have any food.
Claire: Fish fingers come from an egg and then they get born. They catch the fish with a net and bring it to the factory. Then they slice it with a machine. They put it into a machine and it becomes fish fingers. And they put it in a box. And put them in a truck. And put them in Cold Storage. And the person drives to Cold Storage. And she buys fish fingers. When they got home, they ate the food and the little girls didn't eat all the food and her mom threw it away.
Problem: Don't waste food, please. You'll be sent somewhere bad when you die.
Nora: Fish comes from the sea. They chop it. They put it in an oven. They drive fish fingers to the shop. Then people buy it. The boy wasted the food.
Problem: The food will get less food. Also, you won't have money to buy food.
Aubrey: They start as eggs. The fish get caught. And it goes to the boat. It gets killed. It gets shaped in a machine. Then it gets fried or something. Then it gets put in a box. Then it goes to the supermarket. It gets put in the fridge. Anyone can buy it. Then they cook it and put on a plate. It gets eaten or thrown in the trash if it doesn't get eaten.
Problems: The Earth will get sick. Don't waste food or it might go in a dump. And the fish will lose its family. All the animals who eat it will also die.
Arwyn: The fish fingers come from the sea. The people get the fish when they have grown. Then they catch them. Then they use a machine to cut it. They throw the skin away. Then they put in in a box and sell it to shops like Tanglin Mall or Cold Storage. Then a person buys it and has dinner. Then throws it away. But some people eat it all.
Problem: But some people don't (eat it all) and that's not what you are supposed to do and it's bad for the environment, because it goes in to the dump! And then rain comes and it goes into the sea! Because the dump is near the sea. And the poor animals have to eat it. The Earth needs your help! Please save the Earth.
