This product is designed for a class to compete in a trashy Christmas tree built completely from collected packaging waste. Students will learn and gain awareness about daily human packaging waste and the waste created during Christmastime. It is completely STEAM integrated with "I can" statements for each area. Students will collect data and follow the Engineering Design Process throughout the build. This was a very successful activity at my facility where we decided to make it a whole school competition. Awards for teams have been included. There is no better time than Christmastime to think about how to reduce our waste.
