Lesson : Litter: The Picnic


This lesson is based around an animated story in which the Go-Givers character Digby gets separated from his friends, falls into a stream and gets trapped in a bottle!  The story helps younger children learn about the danger litter can pose to wildlife. The simple language, animation and sound effects make this lesson suitable for Reception and Year 1 upwards.
