Aluminium is one of the most recyclable resources, however only if is it is scrunched together and bigger than a golf ball.
The primary class who makes the biggest ball of aluminium foil easter egg wrappers will win a two hour excursion here at Reverse Garbage.
You can use this as a sustainability lesson, a maths lesson (how many wrappers, measure the circumference and weight, research what the aluminium may be recycled into).
Here’s a classroom poster to help you drum up some enthusiasm in your class.
