In relation to our “Clean As” unit we believe that by taking the students to a local recycling centre
we can authentically integrate the use of Thinker’s Keys to enhance the students knowledge of
reusing, reducing and recycling.

       The What If Key: Before the students visit the recycling centre, they use the question
        starter “ What if...” to create questions they may have about the centre. When the students
        return to class use the ideas wheel to record response to the questions answered.
       The Disadvantages Key: List 5 disadvantages of not following the 3 R’s. Now list some ways
        of correcting or eliminating these disadvantages from the information you have gathered at
        the site.
       The BAR key: When the students return from the recycling centre, they will follow the BAR
        key to think about how they can make their recycling centre bigger, what they can add or
        replace to make it more effective for the school.
       The Different Uses Key: While visiting the recycling centre the students will list different
        objects and the uses, E.g. What happens to plastic and glass bottles once they have been
        The Brick Wall Key: Whilst at the recycling centre students will get into groups of 3 and
        discuss this statement using a PMI. “Rubbish trucks should pick up curb side recycling.”
