Kia ora koutou
Recycling week is upon us, from 21-27th October 2019.
This year it's about looking at habits and taking action.
Choose from a range of activities for each day during the week and the weekend
As a part of recycling week you could try to use only online-interactive ARBs with your students.
We have a number of ARB resources that address the Science and English around recycling:
- Recycling materials L3
- Recycling - true or false? L3
- Recycling advertisement L3
- Recycling aluminium L3
- Advantages and disadvantages of recycling L3
- Plastic recycling L3.
At a systems level recycling is also about students recognising what types and amounts of materials are available for recycling e.g.,
and/or identifying what materials do not belong in certain environments e.g.,
- Rubbish on the beach L1/2
- A mystery photo L1/2.
Use these as starting points for disussion around the purpose of recycling.
Also important is the broader idea of Recycle, reduce and reuse.
If you want more, use “recycling” as a keyword to find more resources.
