 Classroom activities

  • Ask the pupils to bring in their favourite item or look at their school uniforms of clothing. Ask them to look at the label on the clothes. What materials are the clothes made from? Are they natural or man-made? Can they figure out where the clothes were made? How far they have travelled? Discuss ways in which they can reduce the distance travelled and greenhouse gas emissions of their clothes.
  • Ask the pupils to bring in an old piece of clothing such as a scarf or gloves. In art class, ask them to ‘upcycle’ the clothes by adding beads
  • Create a classroom swap shop! Ask the pupils to bring in their old clothes that they no longer want, and swap them with their other class mates.
