Things needed for this Module...

The Globe Game:
  • 1 x Inflatable Globe
Footprints:
  • Packets of Walkers crisps with 'carbon footprint' icons (not available in multi packs or catering packs)
  • Two similar items made from different materials (eg. a plastic chair and a wooden chair)
    Big Feet:
      • A large map of the world that you can walk on – this doesn’t have to be accurate, a chalk diagram on the playground would be fine. It needs to be big enough for seven pupils to stand on the land mass comfortably.
      • A very large pair of cardboard shoes – part of the activity can be making them in advance
      • Or you can buy the activity ready made from TTS
        Where’s the Impact?:
        Myth busting:
        • Some A4 paper used on both sides and a recycled paper notebook
        • A steel can (tin can) and something made from recycled  steel, like paperclips
        • A plastic drinks bottle and something made from recycled bottles like a fleece
