Excursion Program Overview
Children bring their favourite Teddy to share this recycling adventure as they use their imaginations to follow the journey from sharing a bite with friends to reducing your waste. Using a story, song and hands-on exploration, students will be introduced to the magic of recycling, how to identify what material products are made from and how to choose the right bin.
- A storybook introduction to get tuned in.
- Discover the amount of waste is generated from a simply sharing a meal together.
- Intentional and guided play-based activities support children in learning about items that can be recycled and where they end up.
- A snack break to rest their minds and recharge their bodies!
- A visit to our amazing ‘Wastelands’ themed room to explore the journey of our recyclable treasures.
- A challenge to become wonderful ‘Party Planners’
- Singing a song consolidates the learnings from the day!
