Polymers and the Environment: Biodegradable and Recycling

This full lesson includes a lesson PowerPoint with student activities and tasks included within the document. Answers are also included at each stage for student review. This lesson focusses on the role of polymers in environmental issues, with particular emphasis on plastics, biodegradability and recycling. There is no practical, but the option to watch associated YouTube clips, although this isn't required for the lesson.

Included in the lesson:

  • Starter keyword crossword task
  • Student opinion on plastics
  • Upgrading answers task (PEE Paragraphs)
  • Student key questions
  • Answer discussion
  • Information on recycling
  • Biodegradable definition
  • Reflection on plastic opinions
  • Reflective plenary activity

This lesson is ideal for students new to environmental issues who haven't been introduced to key terms such as biodegradable and photodegradable. The keywords monomer, polymer, natural, synthetic and polymerization are mentioned within the lesson, so prior knowledge of these terms would be ideal.

The resource is a Powerpoint presentation with an accompanying PDF copy, so the resource can be edited and there is also a print-ready version for included worksheets. Please feel free to ask any further questions before purchasing.
