Recycle Relay


Students will learn about the blue box, what items go in and what items go out and how to sort the material properly. Proper participation in the blue box saves landfill space, water and other natural resources and reduces litter in our environment.


Earth and Space Systems, Grade 5 (Conservation of Energy and Resources)

Energy sources are either renewable or non-renewable.
Energy can neither be created nor destroyed, but it can be transformed.
Choices about using energy and resources have both immediate and long-term impacts.
Conservation (reducing our use of energy and resources) is one way of reducing the impacts of using energy and resources.

  1. analyse the immediate and long-term effects of energy and resources use on society and the environment, and evaluate options for conserving energy and resources;
  2. investigate energy transformation and conservation;
  3. demonstrate an understanding of the various forms and sources of energy and the ways in which energy can be transformed and conserved.
