Recycling Rules

Excursion Program Overview

Children bring their favourite Teddy to share this recycling adventure as they use their imaginations to follow the journey from enjoying a bite with friends to reducing your waste. Using a story, song and hands-on exploration, students will be introduced to the magic of recycling, how to identify what material products are made from and how to choose the right bin.

Activities include:

  • A storybook introduction to get tuned in.
  • Discover the amount of waste is generated from a simply sharing a meal together.
  • Intentional and guided play-based activities support children in learning about items that can be recycled and where they end up.
  • A snack break to rest their minds and recharge their bodies!
  • A visit to our amazing Wastelands themed room to explore the journey of our recyclable treasures.
  • A challenge to become wonderful Party Planners
  • Singing a song consolidates the learnings from the day!

Duration: We recommend 1 hour 30 minutes with a 15 minute break half way through.

Restrictions: Maximum of 25 children per Gould League educator. Adults are free of charge, and we suggest bringing a minimum of 5 per group. No younger siblings please.

Equipment: All children participating in this program are strongly encouraged to bring a Teddy from home or from the Centre to share this experience! .
