Through identifying different waste materials, their long lasting effects on our environment, and the bins they belong in, students will develop skills to apply the “6 R’s” in their school community to move towards zero waste and resource recovery.
Key questions for students to consider:
F-2: How does waste contribute to pollution? What does ‘Zero Waste’ mean? How do the 6R’s help us take care of the planet and people?
Y3-6: How does waste contribute to climate change? How can we turn waste into a valuable resource? How does moving toward zero waste benefit the well-being of the planet and people?
