Waste Activity 3 - Making Your Own School Worm Farm (SEED Resource)

Author: North East Waste & Resource Recovery Group

Description: This unit provides a whole school or classroom project suitable for any year level to develop good recycling attitudes and understandings of how helpful worms can be in processing our waste. It is a simple, cheap, kid-friendly, non-smelly, vermin proof, curriculum-integrated, money saving worm farming project – the ultimate in Recycling. Opportunities are provided for research into worm life cycles as well as their place in the food chain. Schools and students are encouraged to develop processes within their school or classroom to make worm farming an easy sustainable activity to adopt. The activities in this unit are stand alone. Teachers may wish to pick bits and pieces that are suitable for what they want their class to achieve. The activities can also be adapted to suit different age levels.

Waste Unit 2 - Going Nude! (SEED Resource)

Author: NevRwaste

Description: This unit is about encouraging students to examine the amount of waste in what they consume at school. It introduces the concept of ‘nude food’ (food that comes to school without disposable packaging – extra plastic bags, paper bags, wrappings, plastic water bottles or cling wraps) and the choices that are available to them to reduce waste. As Australia is the second highest producer of waste per person in the western world and school lunches add enormously to this, (around 30kg per child per year of litter) this unit looks at alternatives and encourages positive plans of action.
