Great British Beach Clean Source to Sea, is an exciting project from the Marine Conservation Society (MCS) taking place across the UK between Friday 18th and Friday 25th September 2020.
This year, MCS are taking the learning inland, local and online, so you can get involved wherever you are. There are exciting FREE opportunities for schools and other youth groups (5 to 18 years) to learn, have fun, connect with others and discover more about the highly topical issues of littering, plastics and the impact of our throw-away society.
Get involved... we certainly will be :)
A matching activity to support research about four main greenhouse gases. Children can identify different sources of greenhouse gases and also discuss ways to reduce emissions. Images could be used on their own as a starting point for research about greenhouse gases and their effects.
Data (bar graph) to show the greenhouse gases produced by the plastic life cycle and projected emissions if plastic production continues.
This resource can support data interpretation, making predictions and discussions about the effect of the plastic production on the Earth’s climate.
Simple explanations of the journey of single-use plastic, from the extraction of oil, to the production of plastic, to the management of plastic waste.
This resource can be used to order the journey of single-use plastic but also as a starter to discuss the effects of the journey on the environment.
Children could consider how we reduce use of fossil fuels/ greenhouse gas emissions and plastic pollution at each point of the plastic life-cycle.
