Plastics and sustainability
A set of 4 lessons produced by the Environment Agency to help teach about plastic pollution.
The Plastics team of the Environment Agency have produced a set of resources for teachers and other professionals to teach primary school children about the plastic pollution problem and to help children realise that we all have a part to play in making plastic pollution a thing of the past.
The focus of these resources is the marine environment. This is the final destination for much of the plastic waste that enters our rivers.
The resources can be downloaded below and are divided into different Key stages:
Key Stage 1 Lower (Year 1, children aged 5-6),
Key Stage 1 Upper (Year 2, children aged 6-7),
Key Stage 2 Lower (Year 3/4, children aged 7-9),
Key Stage 2 Upper (Year 5/6, children aged 9-11).
