Subjects assigned for presentation and research; Researching the historical process of use of plastic.What are the plastic products used in daily life today?Why is plastic harmful? What is microplastic?How can we reduce the use of plastic? The assigned students presented the presentations they prepared as a result of the research to their friends. As a result of our research; Most plastic bottles and bags are thrown away,Single-use plastics pollute the nature,It has been determined that the use of plastic in our school can be reduced with the measures and recommendations to be taken.Students who listened to the presentation were asked for solution suggestions to reduce the use of plastic. Posters and an awareness board at the school were prepared to reduce the use of plastic. It was decided to implement the recommendations to be taken in the future and to encourage students not to use single-use plastics.
|Throughout the activity It has been observed that most of the single-use plastics are thrown into the nature and this increases the production of plastic. In addition, when the students saw the photos, they realized that more disposable plastics were thrown away than they expected, and this could be prevented.
