Improving recycling through education

PRINTABLE EDUCATIONAL RESOURCES FOR LEARNERS, PARENTS AND TEACHERS

In a country where recycling was not an everyday activity, RecyclePaperZA determined to change behaviour from as early an age as possible. In 2012, the Department of Education supported our proposal to have recycling incorporated in the maths curriculum. To stimulate and educate children in their formative years, the subject was introduced to the syllabus from the foundation phase (Grades R to 3) through to the intersenior phase (Grades 4 to 7).

We have partnered with www.e-Classroom.co.za, a website that provides printable curriculum-based educational resources for children, their parents and teachers. Our sponsored recycling-focused content forms part of the Life Skills content for Grade 3 learners.

Content has also been developed for Grade 1 – 6 Mathematics (data handling) and English, using paper products as examples.

Recycling as a curriculum topic ensures that learners grow up with an awareness of waste and an appreciation of the importance of recyclability.
