‘Material World’ uses Geography and Science to encourage upper KS2 pupils to explore the resources we find on our planet, how we use them and what we can do to conserve them and live in a more sustainable manner.
The pack integrates:
- exploration of materials
- geographical investigations and case studies
- deliberation of our ‘wants’ and ‘needs’
- exploration of the ethics of consumerism
- ideas for practical action
This pack consists of six lessons which are designed to run consecutively over a half term, or during a focussed topic week, culminating in a day of pupils taking action in their school or community.
