Ocean Pollution

Ocean it that bad?

All of our plastic ends up somewhere and unfortunately a lot of it finds it's way into the ocean where it can break down into even smaller sizes and harm wildlife.  Watch the video below to get a better understanding of the problem we face.



A Plastic Ocean (3 min kids version, English)

What can we do about it?

Thankfully, there is hope!  Watch the video below to get a better understanding of just one idea that is being used to clear up the ocean.  Your task is all about how we can stop ocean pollution and you can do the following:


  • Create a poster to highlight how we can save our oceans.


  • Design a machine that will help. For example, it could take rubbish out of the ocean.


With your design, it could be a poster or a set of instructions on how it works (with labels and diagrams).  You could also make it using materials you have at home!  The only limit is your imagination :-)


It would be great to see your ideas when they are finished!
