Recycling through the seasons: book 2 years 5-8

Every season brings changes in nature, in children's leisure activities and in what they can learn about the environment. Recycling through the Seasons offers a diversity of ideas for eco-friendly activities that match the seasons - everything from making non-toxic products for spring cleaning to creating a winter shelter for small animals. With an emphasis on the principles of reduce, reuse and recycle, the activities are low-cost and accessible while raising children's awareness of practical steps they can take to help save the planet.

They also offer an excellent springboard to motivate a host of discussions and further research on environment-related topics. Each book in the series: * suggests a great range of eco-friendly activities to suit each season * makes reusing and recycling a natural part of the classroom environment * inspires further exploration of environmental themes and personal values * includes photocopiable instructions for recipes, craft projects and much more.
