•People produce and send a lot of waste to the local landfills.
•Being a good citizen of our communities and the earth means trying to produce as little waste as we can. Recycling, reusing and reducing the “stuff” we use are three important ways to limit our adverse impact on the earth.
•Reusing items that we would normally throw away can be productive.
•Intermodal shipping containers can be reused in a productive way.
In this activity students will repurpose a shipping container into something useful for society. They will use Google SketchUp to design their creation.
