Taking part in a beach clean is an excellent way of learning about our environment and raising awareness of marine conservation. It’s also a good opportunity to take learning outside of the classroom and into your local environment.
Marine litter is a problem that we can all play a part in solving, and what better way to start than with a day at the beach!
Litter left on beaches, washed into rivers or thrown overboard from boats not only makes the marine environment look unpleasant, it kills thousands of marine animals every year, usually by ingestion, entanglement or smothering.
Balloons and sky lanterns may look pretty while they are going up, but when they come down as litter they pose a real danger to marine life, particularly sea birds who can become entangled in the string, and turtles who may ingest balloons mistaking them for food. Learn with your class why the 'Don’t Let Go' campaign is essential to help reduce their impact in your area.
Flooding due to climate change can have a devastating effect on people's lives. Set on the fictitious island of Watu, pupils explore how STEM skills can be used to help communities be better prepared for flooding
The project provides a real-life context for pupils to explore the health and environmental problems faced by the 3 billion people globally who cook on open fires or traditional cook stoves. It can be used to deliver parts of the UK's Science and Design and Technology curriculum or an enrichment day.
