Waste and Recycling

Age 14 to 18
Challenge Level

Question 1 requires fewer pieces of data so is probably the best question to start with.

You may find it helpful to group the cards together into different categories (such as "plastic"). 

Some cards will need to be used more than once.

Some other questions which might be helpful to consider when answering question 2 are:

  • What is the total waste (recycling and residual) per person in the UK per year?
  • What is the total weight of recycled waste for the family per year?
