Building Bins

Two 50-minute sessions

In this lesson, students learn the difference between organic garbage (which comes from natural sources and readily degrades) and inorganic garbage (which comes from human-made sources and can take a very long time to degrade). They learn the value of sorting different types of wastes so that those wastes can more easily be managed in a sustainable way. Finally, students make recycling bins and learn advocacy skills as they educate the school community about the purpose and value of the bins.
