This resource is designed to be flexible; you might want to use it all or you may want to enjoy the videos as part of a different topic you are exploring, either way, we really hope you enjoy using the resource and look forward to hearing from you.
You are teaching a generation of young people who will have a huge impact on our environmental future. Lessons about recycling, sustainability, and eco-friendly practices are incredibly important. To help bring these important topics to your classroom, we have put together this easy-to-use resource that introduces the topics of recycling and sustainability and goes on to reinforce key messages, and encourages young people to really think about the impact they could have by making a few small changes.
Levenseat's School resource embraces the clear values, purpose, and principles set out by ‘A Curriculum for Excellence and the emphasis on coherent education from ages 3-18.
These relevant recycling and resource awareness activities for children and young people, therefore, aim to lay the foundations for future learning as they progress through the education system and provide an enjoyable and educational experience for children that will:
- Provide young people with key waste reduction and recycling messages and create a positive image of the waste management sector.
Offer real-life context for learning.
- Allow for opportunities to develop skills for learning and skills for life, in order to live a more sustainable life.
Develop young children’s literacy, numeracy, and health and wellbeing, whilst allowing them to learn about recycling, sustainability, and eco-friendly practices.
- Support children in developing the four capacities: confident individuals, responsible citizens, effective contributors, and successful learners.
Ensure cross-curricular links are made on the general themes of waste management, recycling, caring for the environment, and renewable energy.
