An animated sequence that explores how litter and household waste can be recycled. The emphasis is on preventing or minimising harm to the environment. The clip shows the impact of litter on animal habitats and encourages pupils to actively take part in recycling, to protect our environment.
Pupils could sort a collection of items into household recycling boxes and containers. Make sure that any items they handle are clean and do not have sharp edges. For a longer-term project, if you have space at school, you could put a compost bin in an outside area. The children could add items to the bin over time and help to turn the compost, until it is ready to be dug into a nearby flower bed or border.
