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.

Your pupils are growing up in a world that faces some of its biggest challenges ever. Our over-consumption of natural resources and unsustainable lifestyles are threating the very future of the planet that we share with millions of species. The huge variety of life on Earth, biodiversity, provides us with all we need from the air we breathe to the materials we use to build our homes. But if we upset the delicate balance of our planet then we risk losing all that we have.
This activity encourages pupils to make the links between their own actions and the future of our planet. After
thinking about the ways in which they are able to enjoy the ‘great outdoors’ they make a promise to take one
step to protect the Earth.
