    Hi all,

    Just a quick message to let you know that Born Free have uploaded a debate pack on the issue of plastic pollution.

    It is 4-5 lessons long and it can be taught as part of the Geography, Science, English, Citizenship and SMSC curriculums.

    Plastic: Whose responsibility?
    Plastic isn’t, in itself, the problem. It’s what we do with it. We are already unable to cope with the amount of plastic we generate, with severe environmental consequences. Ultimately, who should take responsibility?

    Lesson One – The power of plastics
    Identify and distinguish the origin and properties of various plastics

    Lesson Two – What are the problems with plastics?
    Discuss the impact of plastic pollution on our world and the importance of biodiversity

    Lesson Three – Researching the stakeholders
    Investigate and report on key stakeholders involved in plastic pollution production

    Lesson Four – Preparing to debate
    Analyse arguments and summarise material to support arguments with factual detail

    Lesson Five – The Great Debate
    Participate, listen, and learn through formal debates and structured discussions

    All the best,
