Methodology Suggestions

(for facilitators to deliver training – in school or through a workshop)

(Workshop Activity 1)

  • Show participants picture of 3 children – one with big ears, one with big eyes, and one with big hands and feet. Ask participants what they think the message is about how children learn (visual, audio, kinaesthetic).

  • Brainstorm how bottle tops could be collected for the school (leave a bag in local bar/restaurant and ask owners to collect the bottle tops, which can be collected weekly, children and teachers can collect them and leave them in an allocated place in school)

  • Brainstorm how bottle tops can be used in each subject area (maths – counting, bar charts, grouping, shapes etc), English/Kinyarwanda (spelling words, word games – scrabble), EST/Social studies (counters for game which has appropriate questions for each square)

  • Health & Safety – make sure participants are aware that the bottle tops need to be washed and dried to remove any bacteria and also to avoid rusting. They should be stored in a clean dry place e.g. in nido tin/box.

(Workshop Activity 2)

  • Group 1: Bottle tops for spelling/language learning: Give participants white bottle tops with letters on them (some capital and lower case letters), and ask them how many ways these can be used for language learning. Bottle tops can be from Muzig bottle (already white) or can be painted pale colour)

Examples: scrabble, making words, constructing sentences

  • Group 2: Bottle tops for mathematics: Give participants selection of coloured bottle tops, and ask them how many ways these can be used in a mathematics lesson.

Examples: making shapes, counting (string of 10, string of 20), bar charts (using different colours for each bar), number lines, sorting, grouping, addition, multiplication, subtraction, division, number sentences (some tops can have symbols written on them e.g. + - / x)

  • Group 3: Bottle tops for games: Give participants selection of coloured bottle tops and several sheets of paper/rice sacks, and ask how many ways these could be used for subject specific games.

Examples: snakes and ladders – each colour has a different type of question e.g. yellow=science, green=maths, blue=EST. You could also use this game for one subject but with different sub topics. Chess, chequers etc – again, you can have different questions related to each move.

(School Based Activity)

  • Encourage schools to collect as many bottle tops as possible and to have a method of storing them e.g. in a nido tin/bluband tub/box. They can be labelled by colours/words.

  • Encourage every teacher to have at least one tub of bottle tops per desk. Children can be responsible for looking after their tub, and the teacher can ask them to take them out when needed.

  • Show participants how bottle tops can be used (see above) and encourage them to use them in their lessons.

  • Follow-up is necessary to see if this method is being used in the classroom.

Resources Needed

  • Bottle tops (as many as possible, in different colours, some with letters and/or symbols written on them)

  • Flipchart paper/rice sacks – already prepared

  • Examples of games

  • Examples of number lines – 10 bottle tops per string (you need a nail to make a hole in the bottle tops)

Any Other Information

  • Bottle tops are a wonderful resource which can be used in the classroom, especially with younger children. They are free, easily found and very durable. Encourage whole school participation in collecting them.


  • By encouraging participants to have one box of bottle tops per desk, all children can be active and participative in the lesson. Games are also a fun way for all children to be involved in learning.
