Primary 1 learn about food waste

To conclude our topic on “Reduce, Reuse, Recycle”, Angela from Changeworks came in to do workshops with the P1s about food waste. She introduced them to Silly Sausage, who is very picky and wastes a lot of food! He tried the various food enough times, and ends up liking them all!
P1 then explored why it’s important to throw food waste into a special bin – so that it can be turned into electricity. They did an experiment to see how food can be turned into energy with yeast, sugar and warm water. We then watched as the food reacted and created gas to inflate the balloon on a plastic bottle – they just loved the moment the balloon popped up!
Thank you Angela once again for a fun and educational visit!
