Further ideas

Try some of the other activities that help to put recycling knowledge into practice. Have a go at the Super recycler activity to see how you can improve your domestic recycling and monitor the amount of plastic you use every week that cannot be recycled using the Plastic bin weigh-in activity.

To develop learning further try some of the full lessons from the Ocean Plastics Academy. There are lessons for all ages 5 to 14. From Ocean Plastics Cross-curricular | Ages 5-7, try the lesson Where are plastics?. For older primary students aged 7 to 11, use lessons What can I do? Part one and Part two. For ages 11 to 14, use the geography aligned lessons, How we deal with all the plastic waste? and The global journey of plastic waste.
