Educate

about the issue of plastic pollution in our oceans, explain how plastic enters the marine environment and describe the negative impacts it has on marine life and human health.

Transform

this apparent "rubbish" into a useful and artistic resource by encouraging creativity and highlighting the importance to reduce, reuse and recycle.

 

Provide

ways that individuals and institutions can get involved and make a difference to the world's oceans today.

To promote education and behavioural change towards plastic pollution and how we treat our oceans, organise your own workshop using our free teaching resources and online tutorials

 

Topics We Cover Include:

  • Recycling & Materials

  • Species Adaptation & Interdependence

  • Habitats  & Food Chains

Previous workshops we have conducted were modified to fit each school’s curriculum and ranged from a 1 hour class to whole day sessions. Typically, our pack caters for a single class or year group across Key Stage 2 but can be tailored to accommodate different age groups or as a whole school assembly. National curriculum topics are linked throughout the session, delivered using science and the arts as a platform.

Our FREE teaching resources give background information and lesson plans to explore more about the topic of plastic pollution in the oceans.

Our education pack teaches children about how healthy oceans are vital for sustaining life and how plastic pollution negatively affects the creatures that depend upon it, including us.

 

The lesson plans are designed to encourage students to think about ways that they can change their behaviour to help stop plastic from entering our oceans and inspire them to become stewards of their community and world.
