Circular economy

Understand the environment impact of a linear versus a circular economy

This scheme of work allows students to investigate environmental issues in the context of the design and operation of a new school.

Activity info, teachers' notes and curriculum links

An engaging activity in which students will develop understanding of two conceptual approaches to environmental issues: the linear economy and the circular economy.

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

Remember, it's all free!...and registration is free too!

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