Week 1 – What is Sustainability?

This is the introduction to sustainability. Students will learn the simple concepts of sustainability which include the 3 R’s: Recycle, Reduce, Reuse. Emphasis will be on how to recycle and reuse certain waste products that they have lying around the house.

Students will be giving examples of what can be recycled (Paper, Glass, Metal, Plastic, etc). They will then be following along with the worksheet “Recycling Group Worksheet.docx” with the guide of either the video or “Sustainability week 1.pptx”. Draw and fill in certain materials. This is an opportunity to learn about various household products and items in English. Finish off the lesson with a crossword review found in the ppt.

Teachers need to work with the school to see what are the possible materials that can be recycled. The easiest is usually plastic, glass, and paper.

Long term group activity: Students need to be divided into groups of 3-4 (or less if you prefer). This will set up next week.
