Early Years: Foundation - Year 3

Students make connections between everyday items, daily human activities and marine debris while investigating what happens to rubbish once it's in the ocean and how this affects marine life and humans. Students are empowered to become part of the solution through hands-on beach clean-up activities, source reduction planning and communication through creative expressions.
