What’s in the Bin?

Dear Parents,

We are launching a new Unit of Inquiry this week called “What’s in the Bin?” For the next 5-6 weeks we will be looking around school, checking for rubbish and forming plans on how we can help towards “reducing, reusing and recycling”.

By the end of this Unit, your child should have some understanding of…

  • what we throw away
  • the disposal of waste
  • waste and its effect on the environment
  • conserving the resources that we have (e.g. water, electricity, paper)
  • how they can take more care of their immediate environment both at home and at school

We look forward to bringing new information to share with you about caring for our environment.

Thank you!

    This sounds like a great unit! In previous studies on recycling, our family came across this blog: http://www.zerowastehome.blogspot.com. If you go to that address and click on the “about” button, there is a short video about this family. We found their philosophy very inspiring. 🙂
