Staying Healthy - Recycling
We can recycle different materials, such as class or metal. We put each type into different coloured bins.

Staying Healthy - Recycling

This quiz addresses the requirements of the National Curriculum KS1 Science for children aged 5 and 6 in years 1 and 2. Specifically this quiz is aimed at the section dealing with staying healthy, the environment and recycling.

You need to keep fit to grow and stay healthy. We need to keep the environment healthy as well. One way we can do this is by recycling. At school, you may have learnt about the three R’s - reduce, reuse and recycle. Reduce - use less if you can. Reuse - lots of things can be used again and not thrown away. Recycle - if things have to be thrown away, recycle as much as possible. This quiz is about how we can help the environment to stay healthy.
