PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Where does the trash go after the garbage men take it away? The concept of a landfill can be hard for young students to conceptualize. This lesson will help the class visualize how waste does not simply disappear when it is thrown away, but that it does, in fact end up in a landfill. Then, students are introduced to the concept of recyclable waste and are given an opportunity to sort and count items based on whether or not they can reused. Sorting is then taken one step further as students distinguish trash, recyclable waste, and e-waste.
