Teaching Ideas and Resources:

English

  • Ask a child to take on the role of Michael Recycle and encourage other children to interview him about what happened in the story.
  • Ask children to make a persuasive poster encouraging others to recycle and look after our world.
  • Write a set of instructions which teach people one way of looking after the environment (e.g. 'How to save water' or 'How to recycle your rubbish'). Use these to make a video guide about recycling like the one below:

Computing

  • Use publishing software (e.g. Comic Life) to create a comic strip in Michael Recycle teaches people how to recycle (and why it is important to do so).

Art

  • Can the children create their own environmental superhero who encourages people to look after the planet? What special powers might he / she have? You can also use The Hero Factory to make your own superhero online.
