Litter-ally terrible

Collecting litter around school and creating a tally chart and pictogram

This is one of a set of resources developed to support the teaching of the primary national curriculum. They are designed to support the delivery of key topics within maths and science. This resource focuses on collecting different types of litter, recording the data in a tally chart and creating a pictogram.

Activity info, teachers’ notes and curriculum links

When litter is thrown on the floor it not only looks awful but can have a very bad effect on animals and wildlife. It is ‘litter-ally terrible’! 

The activity sheet includes teachers' notes, useful web links, and links (where appropriate) to the national curriculum in each of the four devolved nations; England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales.

All activity sheets and supporting resources are free to download, and all the documents are fully editable, so you can tailor them to your students' and your schools' needs.
