Join us for this topical session exploring the impact single-use plastic is having on the environment and how they can make a positive change to help. Through the lens of our #OneLess campaign, students will get first-hand experience looking at what happens to plastic when it reaches our waterways. 

Intended Learning Outcomes

Student's will be able to:

  • state at least one reason why the ocean is important.
  • describe how litter from land-based sources reaches the ocean.
  • identify ways they can make a positive impact on the environment.
Age:  KS2 (7-11 year) Duration: 45 minutes Capacity: 35 Students Indoor Session

National Curriculum
