Eco Stars

In Year 2, we completed an eco-activity where we investigated what we use to wrap our sandwiches. After carrying out a survey, we found out most children bring their food wrapped in cling film. After researching, we learnt this one-use plastic is bad for the environment, so we decided to think of a different way to wrap our food. Using the iPad, we researched different options and chose beeswax wraps as the best choice because they are reusable. We then decided to make our own beeswax wrap! We designed, measured, decorated and made our own wraps and now use them to wrap our tasty treats in! Year 2 put a short presentation together to 'show and share' their learning with the rest of the school. Have a look! 

 

If you would like to make your own, here are instructions on how to make a beeswax wrap.

Here is the PowerPoint that shows what the children did during the project.
