PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is a science unit that includes ten activities centered around reducing, reusing, and recycling. It incorporates math, writing, and reading into the science curriculum. Students will read a poem, a one-page non-fiction piece on reducing, reusing, recycling, and websites for additional research. The activities are aimed at encouraging higher level thinking and science inquiry skills.

The activities are involved and hands-on. For one activity, students keep a detailed list of all items that they throw away for one whole week. They will then group their trash into categories and examine class data before making observations and generalizations.

A final writing assignment and poster are also included, allowing students to share their knew knowledge in different ways.

This would make a great Earth Day pack to teach about recycling and the environment.
