We know teachers love resources so we have developed an Eco-Beasts Assembly Pack for you to use. It covers what happened at the CAD day, launches our ‘Design an Eco Beast’ competition and explains the tricky concept of sustainability through drama. You also get access to all the photos from the day. This particular pack also launches a sustainability week at your school, there is an additional PowerPoint with lots of ideas to get your creativity flowing. Please use, adapt, add to and comment, we would love to see what you are doing at your school!
