The environmental issues and recycling are part of the curriculum. This week, we learned Finnish vocabulary on environment, natural conservation, recycling and related topics. Besides learning the language, we had a lesson about recycling in Helsinki, Vantaa, Espoo and Kauniainen area.
Then, on Thursday 2nd of March, we made a field trip to Nihtisilta recycling center, which is the biggest in Finland. The center was located in a walking distance from the school.
In the recycling center, we had a guided tour in the store but also where the sorting is made. It was interesting to see, how recycling works here. Finnish language came also handy and the tour was a good excercise in Finnish.
