About this Resource
In this sample activity from the Biological Sciences strand of the Backyard Science 2: Primary & Secondary Teaching Resource, students explore how decomposition occurs and discriminate between rubbish that is made from living things and other non-living rubbish. Students establish the idea that the living things break down into their component nutrients which allows them to be reused and the life cycle to continue.
