Young Reporters decided to organize a Garbage Day for younger pupils with a goal to provide new knowledge, and an interesting experience.
The day started at the school club by gathering of all 3rd grade pupils. A presentation about wastes by Young Reporters was followed by a discussion about waste separation at home, and some common mistakes were pointed out.
Next came a surprise: pupils dressed up as garbage walking boxes - a blue one, red, green, and yellow. Each „box“ introduced itself, and what it „eats“. Then a mixture of wastes was emptied on the ground, and young pupils were asked to sort them out into corresponding boxes.
The day continued by creative workshops and garbage activities e.g. a „garbage path“ to experience various kinds of wastes barefoot, recognition of wastes with a blindfold, and finally search for a treasure, guarded by a waste mummy.
Older pupils built up compost bins from old wooden pallets to produce compost at the school garden.
At the end of the day, each classroom received a new bin for collection of organic waste.
