Changes to the Environment 2
We can help reduce the amount of rubbish that goes to landfill by recycling.

Changes to the Environment 2

One of the topics covered in KS2 Geography is the physical or chemical disturbances, rather than the ecological processes, which cause change to the environment. This is the second of two quizzes specifically looking at this subject in order to increase a child's understanding of the matter.

Change to the environment is caused by natural ecological processes, but this quiz is more concerned with the change caused by the activities of humans. What can we do to repair any damage we have made by changing the environment? And what are the purposes for doing so?

Play this quiz and discover more about the changes caused to the environment, not by ecological processes, but by man.

    The damage done to the environment by the quarry can be put right by creating a nature reserve

    By using less water we can help improve the situation

    Recycling is just one way we can also reuse and reduce
