Rubbish Monster is a PDF booklet supplied by eco-schoolsni.org. The booklet covers eight main themes, designed to help make a school an Eco School.
“The aim of the eight activities outlined in this resource is to help pupils discover what waste is and what happens to it; how much we as individuals create and what we can do to Reduce, Reuse and Recycle. Pupils are encouraged to look at their own habits and to consider how these can be changed. Through these activities it is hoped that the pupils develop a sense of personal responsibility with regard to waste and its environmental impact. We intend not only to establish a waste free classroom but habits that last a lifetime.” (Eco-Schools)
The Rubbish Monster booklet is a teacher resource for use with KS1 or KS2 and is based on teaching the three Rs: Reduce, Reuse and Recycle.
The booklet offers a mixture of class and individual activities, beautifully presented with the Rubbish Monster himself being quite engaging! There are 60 pages of activities, information, ideas for class use, home use and more. It is absolutely invaluable for anyone doing an environmental project.
It ends with a class pledge about reducing, reusing and recycling waste to improve the environment.
