Unit 9: Get recycling!

U9_get_recycling_cover

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle!

Get ready for a pirate invasion!
The 3Rs: reducing, reusing and recycling are
coming to town with pirate dirtgirl and pirate scrapboy at the helm!

This kooky unit puts the fun into getting your rubbish sorted.
What is rubbish ? What is landfill? What are the 3Rs?
Handling our rubbish with care is at the heart of this unit.

There’s great information on what rubbish is and where it goes,
activities to help get it sorted and loads of recycled crafts.

There’s also a great section on waste-free lunches and starting
a waste-free lunch program. You can even celebrate National
Recycling Week, Keep Australia Beautiful Clean Up Day and
Clean up the World Day along the way.

Sing and dance along with The eco-hoedown and Handle with care.
