Overview: Like real scientists, your students must learn keen observation to take in information and record details of what they see. After all, it's only after someone has really seen something that he or she can make sense of it. Photography, especially photographing shapes and patterns, can be a great learning and assessment tool for capturing observations, documenting experiments, and revealing student understanding.
Inspire your children to recycle and engage with environmental issues using our range of Eco, Recycling and Environment resources. Our recycling collection includes resource packs, worksheets, PowerPoints and games on plastic pollution, water, endangered animals and Fairtrade.
