Finite Planet, Finite Resources

Finite Planet, Finite Resources: tackle excessive waste with lesson plans for protecting the planet.

These finite resources lesson planning packs for KS1 and KS2 include slides, activities and resources all about repairing, reusing and recycling – and how our planet cannot sustain the 'throw-away society' we live in today.

These finite planet mini-schemes of work for Key Stages 1 and 2 are perfect for teaching separately as standalone units of work, but they also form part of our larger Education for Social Responsibility curriculum for the whole school.
