Teaching Resources

The teaching materials include a series of innovative lesson plans, assembly resources and an extended school project to show pupils how they can make a difference by recycling more.

The resources have been tested by teachers and are designed to be interactive, relevant and engaging for pupils, while helping teachers deliver against the national curriculum. Each lesson uses video, featuring teenagers Charlie and Joel, to introduce ideas, raise questions and set challenges, and is built around one or more core activities, like role play, card sequencing, or student opinion lines. The lessons focus on the following areas:

  • lesson one looks at students’ current attitudes, behaviour and understanding of recycling;
  • Lesson two explores the consequences of students’ decisions to recycle or bin their rubbish;
  • lesson three includes an interview Environment Secretary Hilary Benn, and uses role-play to help students think about the role of government, businesses and consumers in recycling more; and
  • lesson four helps students to think about actions they can take in their own lives to recycle more, and leads into a whole school project.

All the resources can be downloaded for free fromwww.recyclenow.com/schools, where teachers can also access a range of information and advice on recycling at school and learn more about what’s working well in other schools.”
