Forces and Recycling

Many primary teaching resources on recycling tend to focus on the materials being recycled and their properties. Here the focus is on the forces used by industry throughout the recycling process. Children investigate magnetism, crushing forces, upthrust and friction as they look for the most efficient way to carry out recycling. There is also an opportunity to make paper from recycled newsprint.
