Many people who contact Planet Ark tell us that it's their children who have taught them about recycling after learning about it at school. So, in many ways, it is the teachers who are the forefront of the recycling revolution.
Why not incorporate recycling and waste education activities into your lessons?
'DO SOMETHING!' LESSON PLANS
These lesson plans are taken from the Planet Ark 'Do Something' environmental education kit for primary schools. The kit was developed in line with all of Australia's states' and territories' curriculums.
Units 13 and 14 were designed to teach the "3 R's" of waste minimisation – Reduce, Reuse and Recycle. Each Unit has activities for Junior, Middle and Upper Primary levels.
