Pollution: a day at the sea-side

This animated Power point resource describes a day out at the sea-side for the Lute family who think they know all about pollution and yet show that their knowledge is as shallow as the sea lapping up against the litter with which they have decorated their sandcastle.
The audience are requested to think how the family could have behaved differently and to question what their own families do on days out at the coast.
Included is the famous riddle about St Ives and so the pupils can see how a small problem can be multiplied and that we should be all doing our bit by picking up the plastic one piece at a time. Ideal as a discussion starting point on the effects of pollution especially in a coastal setting and as the Summer holidays approach, a cautionary tale!
This resource will stretch reading and comprehension skills as well as providing an opportunity to demonstrate maths skills at the same time…
recommended for ages 8+
