Great for Earth Day or the end of the year!
Trash can help anthropologists and historians make inferences about how people lived a long time ago. It can tell us what they ate, what their social status was, what they did for fun, and lots of other things. With this product, students will have a chance to pretend they are anthropologists as they analyze their own trash habits, as well as the trash habits of others.
Garbology – The Study of Trash includes:
• A place to brainstorm thoughts and ideas about trash
• A trash list (that can be printed doubled sided)
• An analysis page for students’ own trash lists
• An analysis page for someone else’s anonymous trash list
• An analysis page for all the trash of the entire class
• A page for writing down how to generate less trash
• A link to a You-Tube video about a waste-free grocery store with
a question to go along with it
• A link to a blog that shows different products made from recycled
materials and a place to brainstorm what other products could
also be made using recycled materials
• A page for students to create their own product out of recycled
