Room 17 quix
In Room 17 we have been trying hard to look after our environment. We have been working hard at reducing, reusing and recycling. This week we have been exploring different materials and finding out how long they stay in our rivers and seas if people don’t dispose of them properly.
We would like you to guess how long it takes for some items of rubbish to degrade in the water. We’ve given you a couple of answers to get you started. Next term we will give you all the answers.
Good luck from Room 17
