This 'Where Does This Come From?' scheme of work for Year 1 and 2 begins by encouraging your class to think about whether they are using resources responsibly or wastefully. They will then explore where paper comes from and how it is made, before learning how important it is to reduce the amount of waste we create by reusing and recycling as much as we can.

Including lesson plans, engaging slide shows for the teaching input, differentiated activities and a range of printable resources, this 'Where Does this Come From?' scheme of work encourages your class to think about where their resources come from, and how to recycle and use them in a more responsible way.

#Lesson1UsingResourcesResponsibly

In this first lesson, children are asked to think about the different resources they use in their classroom, and whether they use them in a wasteful way or a responsible way. In their independent work, children identify wasteful and responsible uses of different resources. In the alternative activity, children choose a resource to be responsible for, and make a responsibility tie which they then wear to remind everyone that they need to use this resource responsibly.

This downloadable lesson includes a lesson plan, a slideshow presentation and printable teaching resources.

In their independent work, children show their understanding of how paper is made by ordering, matching and writing explanations for pictures. In the FSD? activity, children are given the chance to make their own recycled paper.
