PLASTIC FREE SCHOOLS IS A SYSTEM SHAKING, CHANGE
MAKING PUPIL LED EDUCATION PROGRAMME.
This groundbreaking programme equips and empowers young activists
with the tools to create positive, lasting environmental change.
Created to hit key curriculum targets from KS1 – KS3, the five
‘Objectives’ guide students through the plastic free schools process
in an easy to understand, purposeful and fun way!
Designed to take the conversation of single-use plastic and its environmental implications a step further in a classroom environment. There are five lesson plans each for key stage 2 and key stage 3 which explore how and why we use plastic, what happens to it once we’re done and how it’s affecting our coastlines.
Lessons range from an English lesson where pupils debate the theoretical motion that the concept of Plastic Free Schools should be disregarded until 2042. This will help pupils to recognise the importance of seeing issues from different stakeholder points of view whilst finding out more about the impact of single-use plastics. To 'On the Plastics Trail,' a Geography lesson,where pupils discover how plastic pollution is caused and use geographical skills to investigate pollution affecting UK coastlines.
