For our Inquiry this term we are looking at how we can make a difference to the environment by reducing landfill through reusing and recycling.
Today we were Litter Detectives and went for a walk around our neighbourhood to see if we would find any rubbish. Luke, Hannah and Aly had a map of our streets and when we saw some rubbish they marked it on the map. We took photos of the kinds of rubbish that we saw.
This is what we discovered:
There was no rubbish around the shops at the end of our street. We think that might be because there were two rubbish bins for people to put their rubbish in.
The other streets around our school looked very clean and rubbish free.
In the street that our school is on, we saw quite a bit of rubbish and we were surprised. We think the rubbish was there because
- there are no rubbish bins in the street
- people have dropped their wrappers and containers
- the wind may have blown it out of rubbish bins
- the rubbish has fallen out of bins when the garbage collector has picked up the bins
We have a problem!
What can we do to help clean up our street?
Please let us know your ideas!
Preps, talk to your families and friends and see if you can find an answer to our problem.
Here are some photos of our discoveries:
