Topic - Oceans and Plastic Pollution

Our topic this term is ‘Oceans and Plastic Pollution’. Here are suggestions for some topic activities you might like to complete at home this week:

  • Look again at the invention ideas from ‘A Planet Full of Plastic’ – (PICTURE 1) Do you think these inventions would work? Why/why not? 

Invent your own method of helping to clear up plastic from the ocean. Think big and be creative! Draw a labelled diagram of your invention, write about how it works and maybe even build a model of it!

  • Use this grid (PICTURE 2) to track any items you recycle each week. You might want to create a chart to show the different items you recycle. Chart Paper is below or use J2Data tools j2e - chart to create a chart
