Resources for teachers and students

Classroom resources

We have created teacher's packs on key topics in recycling, which give you all the information you need to cover the topic in class. Each pack includes a set of teacher's notes, plus activities and worksheets that can be used in the classroom. We will be adding more resources to this section, so please check back soon or contact us if there is a particular topic that you would like information on.

Nursery – Primary 2

Primary 2 – Primary 4

Primary 5 – Primary 7  

We have also developed a pack for teachers with lots of ideas for activities focusing on reuse. This was created to tie in with Pass It On Week in March 2015, but can be used at any time. Pass It On Week was organised by Zero Waste Scotland to encourage people to get involved with all kinds of reuse activity and tackle the huge amount of reusable items that are sent to landfill every year.
