WWF Oceans and Plastics KS2 Activity set

This resource contains a range of activities aimed at teachers of 7-11 year-olds.

It is intended that this resource will be used in cross-curricular work and all activities can be linked to the National Curricula of England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales. Teachers will find that the material can be adapted for use with different ages and abilities.

The six activities engage pupils in active learning methods, encouraging them to work together to solve problems, to think creatively, and to see themselves as active participants in their communities and the wider world.

It is hoped that, as they build their knowledge and understanding, they will become aware of a ‘bigger picture’ and see how seemingly small actions, such as using a plastic drinking straw, can have far reaching consequences. With a growing awareness of the part that they can play in creating a better future for our oceans, pupils will take a step on the journey to becoming global citizens and sustainability champions of the future.
