Plastic Persuasion Lesson Plan KS3
Everything you need to know to plan and deliver your lesson.
Years: 7, 8, 9
Subjects: English, Maths
Almost a decade ago, Surfers Against Sewage conducted a Plastic Pollution Brand Survey; a brand audit that revealed that the majority of all beach litter (56%) was attributable to just twelve corporations, dubbed the ‘Dirty Dozen’. Use the PowerPoint to introduce the students to this historical data as well as their challenge and the reasons behind it. Together, explore the data gathered 10 years ago that led to the naming of the ‘Dirty Dozen.’ Speculate about how it may be different 10 years later. As a class, plan the litter pick carefully to ensure good quality and useful data will be gathered.
