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 draw a map of their local area, showing all the recycling collection points they know. These could include separate waste bins in the school building, bottle banks, compost heaps in nearby gardens, charity shops, clothing banks and battery recycling points in local supermarkets. You could take the class on a walk around the neighbourhood to identify more recycling points.
