Plastics Education

Educational Tools

These resources have been designed for Canada's educational community to inform educators about the science behind plastics and the different roles that plastics play in society – from automotive and packaging applications to purifying water in third-world countries.

The range of resources includes specific lesson plans and curricula written for elementary and secondary school teachers – from kindergarten to grade 11.

Also available are online games, fun activities, science experiments and comprehensive information on plastics recycling, including the increasing number of valuable products that are made from recycled plastics.
