THE MIGHTY EMPTIES STUDY MATERIAL PACKAGE
All Finns are familiar with returning bottles and cans. It makes talking about the importance of recycling and reuse of materials to schoolchildren easy. The recycling of beverage containers can be discussed as part of environment and nature studies, social studies or home economics lessons.
The Mighty Empties study material package introduces the world of recycling and everyday ecology to schoolchildren. The free-of-charge materials are mainly aimed at comprehensive school grades 4–7, but they can also be applied to teaching other grades.
The study material package includes:
- Teacher’s guide
- Teacher’s background information package
- Pupil’s practice book
- PowerPoint presentation
More detailed descriptions of the materials and instructions for downloading and ordering can be found below.
TEACHER'S GUIDE & BACKGROUND INFORMATION PACKAGE
The teacher’s guide includes instructions for using the different materials together or separately. The background information package offers the teacher background facts on the recycling of beverage containers. The package provides additional resources for discussing the questions presented in the other materials and developing additional exercises.
The practice book contains information on the recycling of beverage containers and related questions, exercises and a quiz. You can order as many printed practice books as you want free of charge from the Subject Aid study material bank or download the book in PDF format.
The presentation contains largely the same information as the practice book, but in a format suitable for projecting. The presentation works well when the teacher leads the discussion, but it can also be printed for pupils to review independently or in groups.
The quiz on the recycling of beverage containers repeats what is discussed in the different materials and encourages seeking information proactively.
Material Bank contains information on recycling systems.
