Understanding the world-

Here is an activity to help explain the importance of world oceans day and why we need to keep our oceans clean.

Can you find a clear plastic tub/ jug and half fill it with clean water and some plastic toys (ideally fish/water toys).

Add a some rubbish (e.g a shredded plastic bag, cardboard) and black food colouring/ coffee granules to represent oil/rubbish/sewage).

How different does your mini ocean look now this has been added? What might happen to the sea creatures if they swim into all this rubbish?

Expressive Arts & Design-

Can you use resources you have available to make one or more of the following or one of your own craft ideas for world ocean day?

Here is a link below with craft ideas to help:

At 1pm turn to Ocean Creative Zone and there are two authors reading stories appropriate for our children:

– Author and wildlife expert, Sarah Roberts, reads her book ‘ Somebody Swallowed Stanley’ and shares animal facts, in this mini lesson on ocean plastic

-Author Lauren Davies read the story of the Little Turtle that hatches a plan to save the world from plastic pollution and learn how you too can make a difference and be an Eco Hero!
