Grade 3

Conservation of our marine life

Module 5


What kind of litter do we find on beaches? write down the word and draw a picture underneath each word.

Discuss in your groups:

  • What causes the pollution problem?
  • How can you help to prevent pollution along the coast?
  • Write down five ideas.

Discuss the picture below in your groups.

  • Identify the litter lying around.
  • Circle in red each litter item.
  • Colour the picture neatly.

Use the following words in good sentences.

Both sentences must tell us more about the sea.

Dangerous - Clean

  • Design a large notice board that can be put up on beaches.
  • Warn the people not to scatter litter on the beach.
  • Have a group discussion on what the container for litter on the beach should look like. Draw a simple picture of the container. Compare it to the drawings of the other groups.

Do you think your container will be usable?

  • Give two reasons why you think the city/town council will use your container. Remember: Each of us must help to conserve our marine life. Do not damage that which is beautiful. Care for our nature.

Discuss other kinds of pollution. is there any other project that you can initiate?

What about air pollution, littered parks, noise, and others?

Colour the matching items the same colour.


Learning Outcomes(LO’s)
HEALTH PROMOTION The learner will be able to make informed decisions regarding personal, community and environmental health.
Assessment Standards(ASs)
We know this when the learner:
1.2 participates in a recycling project and explains how recycling contributes to environmental health.
LO 3
PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT The learner will be able to use acquired life skills to achieve and extend personal potential to respond effectively to challenges in his or her world.
Assessment Standards(ASs)
We know this when the learner:
3.5 identifies groupwork skills and applies them consistently.
EXPLORING ISSUESThe learner will be able to make informed decisions about social and environmental issues and problems.
Assessment Standards(ASs)
We know this when the learner:
3.1 identifies a pollution issue (e.g. The pollution of our marine life);3.2 describes the factors leading to the pollution problem;3.4 suggests ways to reduce the pollution problem being investigated;3.5 proposes solutions to reduce the pollution problem being investigated.
SCIENTIFIC INVESTIGATIONSThe learner will be able to act confidently on curiosity about natural phenomena and toinvestigate relationships and solve problems in scientific, technological and environmentalcontexts.
Assessment Standards(ASs)
We know this when the learner:
1.3 Reviews : explains and reflects on what action was intended and whether it was possible to carry out the plan ( reviews how actions of members in the group contributed to the purpose; reflects on what other topics might be investigated).
TECHNOLOGICAL PROCESSES AND SKILLS The learner will be able to apply technological processes and skills ethically and responsibly using appropriate information and communication technologies.
Assessment Standards(ASs)
We know this when the learner:
1.3 Designs : suggests different possible solutions, chooses one and uses freehand sketches to represent it;1.4 Makes : expresses how products are going to be made and what will be used to make them;1.6 Evaluates : identifies strengths and weaknesses about own products and the products of others


  • Design a container for litter (Tech. 1.2; 1.3; 1.4).
  • If your school is near the coast, arrange an excursion for the learners to tidy up part of the beach. If that is not possible, a river bank or stream in the neighbourhood will do.
  • Recycling project: organise a recycling project in which all the grades can participate (LO 1.2).
  • Songs to learn: Row, row, row your boat
