We have collected a range of different pieces of plastic from our homes and around the school. On Tuesday afternoon we completed a very interesting task where we grouped the plastics in many different ways. Some of the groupings included: hard and soft, recyclable and non-recyclable, sizes and recycling numbers.
Some of the discussions around why and how plastic is different, how it looks and feels different, and has different uses was extremely interesting. We learned that plastic is made up of polymers and all plastic items are different because of what they are made up of or how they are made.
