Turn recycling into valuable classroom learning that will last a lifetime!
This year we have again partnered with the award winning Cool Australia to promote a series of engaging recycling lessons. Teachers can download free lesson plans, digital worksheets and a host of other resources to teach lessons that will last a lifetime.
These resources are aligned with the Australian Curriculum and address the cross curricula priorities of ‘sustainability' and ‘Aboriginal and Torres Straight Islands culture and history'. They include a collection of new digital learning resources for primary and high school education, as well as a new Early Learning section, where students learn by having fun.
Don't forget to register your lessons and other Schools Recycle Right Challenge activities so they can be counted towards the national results and to receive other free support materials.
Create a paperless classroom - by taking advantage of Cool Australia's digital sharing functionality. Register with Cool Australia to create your personalised teacher dashboard that allows you to send and receive digital worksheets. Get your kids out there collecting data for real life learning!
