These primary resources, aimed at both teachers and parents alike, can support your teaching around National Earth Day on 22nd April.
If you are interested in paper issues then why not use your left over scrap paper to make recycled paper or how about making biodegradable paper containers to grow plants?
If litter and recycling are more your bag you can make a tally chart of the litter you collect and then make your own recycling centre so that it can be re-used and made into another product to be used again.
Students may be interested in nature and trees and we have resources to support their learning too! From measuring the circumference of tree trunks to work out their age, to measuring the weight of packaging and using this to work out how many items can be made from just one tree!
These practical activities help your students explore a range of topics using hands-on approaches. We have also included links to our relevant posters and recent Engineer a Better World campaign looking at greener jobs of the future.
Please note, these resources and experiments have been specifically designed to be carried out with adult supervision or direction as appropriate, and it is recommended that the instructions are followed in a safe manner. All resources and experiments are carried out at your own risk.
