Our 4th year primary students took part in a very interesting workshop. The aim was to develop in the students important daily habits such as eating healthy and recycle (or much better, stop buying food wrapped in plastic so that there is no need to recycle it and, of course, we don’t damage our environment so much).
Children were divided into groups to carry out cooperative work. Each group had to buy food in the supermarket taking into account the number of family members and the number of meals to cover. Those who respected the food pyramid and bought healthy food for all family members were the winners.
Later, they were taught the different recycling containers and the type of materials they can throw in each container. They learnt that it is important to recycle, but it is much more important no having to recycle avoiding buying plastic wrappings.
