Schools Recycle Right Challenge
In 2014 the Schools Recycle Right Challenge, an initiative of National Recycling Week, will be held from Monday 20 October to Friday 14 November.
We provide free recycling activity guides, lesson plans and Australian school event ideas, designed to engage students and teachers to learn by doing and having fun! Some examples:
- Recycling or re-use events, like swap parties, file flings, or recycling games
- Art and craft activities, from collages and instruments to plastic bag knitting
- Guest speakers, from councils or recycling organisations
- Starting a new recycling system, compost or worm farm, or a demonstration
You'll find a broad range of comprehensive learning resources that link directly to the Australian Curriculum. These free resources include lesson plans, smartboard curriculum, video content, factsheets, research articles and digital toolboxes. Immerse your students in fun and engaging learning and teach lessons that will last a lifetime.
Registered activity coordinators will have access to these materials throughout the year.
